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

A loan helped to buy fish, renovate her house and buy piglets.

Iress's story

Iress is a resident of Tubigon, Bohol. She is 37 years old, married, and has 15-year-old teenage girl. Her husband is a fisherman, and she helps her husband by selling the fish. Aside from selling her husband’s catch, Iress also buys other fresh fish to retail. Precisely, she does a fish selling business.

For this purpose, she asks for a loan for additional capital to run this business continuously. Thus, she will buy fish. Another part of her requested amount will be used to renovate her house, and a portion also will be used to buy piglets. Perhaps she plans to start a hog-raising business.

Iress wishes to improve her business in the future and become sustainable.
