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


A loan helped to buy groceries and soft drinks to retail; the other part of her loan will be used to buy fishing net and fishing rope.


Virgie's story

Virgie is a married woman and a resident of Carles, Iloilo, where fishing is their main source of income. Like the other people in her community, she and her husband are doing this livelihood to earn income and sustain themselves every day.

In addition to fishing, Virgie also runs a sari-sari (variety) store. For this, she is asking for a loan to buy grocery items such as bread, cooking oil, food seasonings, toiletries, and other basic commodities. She will also buy soft drinks to retail. The other part of her loan will be used to buy fishing net and fishing rope.

In this way, she and her husband will be able to enhance their catch and increase their earnings as well. In the future, Virgie wants to have enough capital of their own to run their business continuously.
