A loan of $1,500 helped to repair one of the motors of her fishing boat.

Ana Vilma's story

Ana, who is 43 years old, lives in a rural community. Her parents were very poor, and for this reason they unfortunately were not able to send her to school, but she has learned to sign her name. She now has a partner, and she has 5 children. The older ones are 26, 24, and 23 years old, and they have formed their own household. Her other son is 19, and he works to cover his expenses. Only her daughter who is 14 depends on her, and she is studying n fifth grade in school.

Selling fish has been Ana's activity for 10 years, since her older children do the fishing, then they divide up what they obtain during the workday. In addition, she has a store in her house, which allows her to obtain additional income. Her work schedule varies because sometimes she works at night and other times during the day.

She learned this work from her husband, who did it in the past, but he died, and it was a very hard blow for Ana. It is only now that she has decided to rebuild her live again with another person.

To carry out her fishing work, Ana needs to have good working equipment. It is for this that she is applying to CrediCampo for this loan, since she needs to repair one of the motors of the fishing boat, which has been damaged and is causing losses n the fishing business, since she is working with only one, and she need to have equipment in perfect condition.

Ana has many expectations for the future. She wants to expand her store, improve her fishing equipment to obtain better earnings, be able to construct a house for herself and her family, and continue providing an education for her daughter so that she can better herself in life.
