A loan of $1,450 helped to get a motor and fishing nets.


Carlos's story

Carlos is married and has one son. Carlos lives in the Isla Suriqui community. He lives in his mother and father-in-laws’ brick and cement house.

Carlos is a fisherman, and he concentrates on fishing for 'pejerrey' and 'carachi' [types of fish] in the Huatajata area. Carlos is selfless as he starts fishing at two in the morning.

He needs a loan to get a motor and fishing nets for his business activity. Carlos is the only source of income in his household.
