A loan of $850 helped to purchase fish, lobster and squids.


Beatriz's story

Beatriz is 37 years old and married. She has seven children who attend school away from home.
She sells shellfish (shrimp, lobster and fish) to restaurants of her province, and with the profits she pays for her children's school fees.
With the loan she'll purchase fish, lobster and squids for re-selling.
Her biggest dream is to enlarge her house and buy furniture. However, she faces the challenge of expanding her clientele.
