Melba's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to repair their fishing boat (to buy materials likes plywood, paint, nails, fishing boat glue, and paint) and to buy boat engine and bobo (a kind of fish trap) materials.


Melba's story

Melba and her husband are engaged in a fishing business to earn a living. They have been doing this livelihood for many years.

She is a mother of five children. Four of these are fully grown and the other is still dependent. Melba wants to have a better means of living in the future. That is why she aims for business improvement.

To do this, she is asking for a loan to repair their fishing boat. Probably, she will need to buy materials likes plywood, paint, nails, fishing boat glue, and paint. Other parts of her loan will be used to buy boat engine and bobo (a kind of fish trap) materials.

In this way, she and her husband will be able to operate their business continuously. With a good condition boat and fish trap materials, they could possibly improve their catch.
