Silia's story

Meet Silia. She is a mother to six children and the wife of a fisherman. They live in their own home near the shore where her husband goes fishing almost every day.

She and her husband run a business of fishing, where her husband does the catches and Silia sells the fish and the seafood from their stall at the market place.

They hire two men to help her husband with the fishing.

Silia and her husband have been running this business for nine years now, and the business is continuing to grow. It runs very well, enabling her to pay her loan and also the expenses of the family. She is applying for a loan to buy a new fishing net and engine for her business.
