A loan of $1,050 helped to repair the tools to harvest shellfish.


Cintia's story

She is from Waspam, is 35 years old, married, and has 5 school-aged children. With the goal to have her own source of income, approximately 10 years ago they moved to Puerto Cabezas to establish a small grocery store. Her husband works as a diver in the Miskito Cays and with the objective to have other sources of income, began to work harvesting prawns and conches with baskets, to sell them in the city of Puerto Cabezas. She asks for a loan to repair the tools to harvest shellfish and increase the sales. Her dream is to improve her family's quality of life and to support her children's professional and personal development.
