Melita started her business with only one fishing boat. Fortunately, she now has four fishing boats and sells the catch wholesale to neighboring towns. She extends support to other fishermen in their community. She's applying for a loan from Paglaum for she believes in providing help to people who are also in the fishing business. Her heart's desire is to continue inspiring people to be hardworking so that everybody will live abundantly.
