A loan of $1,200 helped to buy 3 fishing nets.


Jose Yovani's story

Jose, 27, and his wife have 2 children and are expecting a third child any day.

Jose had to leave school after the seventh grade because his family couldn't afford for him to go on. He has made his living fishing for 13 years. He started when he left school and the business is his means of supporting his family. He is applying for a loan, part of which he will use to buy 3 fishing nets that he needs and the rest to maintain other equipment that he uses for the business.

Jose hopes that he can build a better life for his family and provide his children with everything that they might need.
