A loan of $350 helped to purchase thread for weaving the nets and lead and cork for the new nets; and to improve his working equipment.

Alexi Rodolfo's story

Alexi is 29 years old and he has studied up to the ninth grade. He lives with his partner who takes care of the household duties, and he has two children—a boy who is one year old, and a girl who is 6 years old and studying in first grade.

He, for his part, used to work for a company; and a few years ago he joined his uncle in fishing in order to do better. Many times Alexi goes out to fish from 5 in the morning until very late; and on other days he works at night.

The money will be used for purchasing thread for weaving the nets, and lead and cork for the new nets; and for helping them improve their work equipment.

His main dream is to prepare his children so that they may have a good future. With the loan, he will improve his equipment and therefore, increase his catch and his income.
