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

A loan helped to buy fishing gear and a large freezer.

Matila's story

With steady demand in the market for fresh fish and seafood, Matila (58) knows that fishing is a reliable source of income. She lives in a seaside village with her two children.

Matila works hard and her income is just enough to maintain her independence. But she wants to be able to save and plan for the future for the sake of the children.

She seeks a loan to buy more fishing gear so that she can boost the size and quality of her catch, and a large freezer to store product and increase its lifetime.

Matila is confident her goods will bring in profit if properly stored and well kept.
