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

A loan helped to cover her son's expenses for a course for a boating license.

Vera's story

Vera is seen with her son in the picture. He is interested in taking a course to obtain a boating license. With the loan Vera is requesting, she will cover the expenses for this course. It will help her son to be useful in the family by working with a speedboat for fishing. Vera also needs to fix the speedboat and the fishnets. Fishing is their main source of income. It brings in around $8,500/year.

Meanwhile, Vera continues to work in agriculture/livestock. They have one dairy cow, a pig, and chickens, but all are used for their own consumption. Her husband uses his tricycle to offer small transportation services.

Vera’s family is big and so are the needs. This is why all try to work to provide for the family.
