A loan of $525 helped to buy fishing nets.


Erineo's story

Erineo, 26, is a fisherman who lives on an island in Lake Titicaca, a tourist area in La Paz department that offers visitors straw and wool handicrafts. Most of the residents work in the fishing and tourism industries. This is the member's first loan cycle with the institution. Erineo will use the loan to buy fishing nets so that he can increase his catch and have more working capital. Erineo will use his profits to keep working, as this is his only income source. Erineo works hard and is pleased to have this opportunity.
