Karla Patricia's story

Karla Patricia has been selling fresh seafood in the Santa Ana market for thirteen years. Karla is a mother to three daughters, all of whom are in school. Karla is making a lot of effort to help them to get ahead. She works Monday to Friday, from 5am, when she comes to the market to sell her merchandise until midday. Karla is applying for a loan in order to buy red snapper, which is more expensive than other fish. Karla needs capital to buy this fish in bulk.
