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

A loan helped to buy petrol for the fishing boat.

Sela's story

Sela has six grown-up children and a fisherman as a husband. Currently, she is running a fishing business whereby her husband goes fishing and she sells the fish along a main road in town. Where they live is a village for which the sea is one of their primary sources of food, for they are located along the seashore.

Sela also takes time to go do some low-tide fishing, when she also collects some other seafood to sell. This has been their way of life for many years. The main purpose of their business is to be able to provide for their family and lift up the standard of their lives.

She is applying for a loan to buy petrol for the fishing boat her husband is using for fishing. Business has been so slow due to climate change and COVID-19.
