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

A loan helped to purchase a net and a dugout canoe for fishing.

Famille Rubatse Group's story

Fidèle has been a fisherman for a long time now. Before, he was a worker and, at the end of the month when he received his salary, he only had 1/3 of what he earns now.

In September 2016, he became a partial owner of a net and a dugout canoe. He is now asking for a loan to purchase his own boat and net with the hopes of improving his income and the living conditions of his family. The only difficulty in this line of work is that sometimes the choppy waves keep him from working as much as he would like to and from earning the income he counts on.
