but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy fuel for their boat and more octopus to sell.


Lina's story

51-year-old Lina has a fishing business together with her husband. They live in Concepcion, Iloilo. With this livelihood, she is supporting a 16-year-old dependent.

Lina is helping her husband most of the time so he can better prepare during the day for his fishing. She also sells his catch and buys other fresh fish from fishermen to resell for a profit.

Lina needs additional funds to buy fuel for their boat and more octopus to sell. Octopus is usually cooked to be eaten while drinking alcohol or beer. This is called "pulutan" by locals.

She hopes that through her loan she can maximize her business so as to allow her to take care of the needs of her family.
