A loan helped to buy a new engine for their fishing boat.


Mele's story

Mele is a 34-year-old mother of four. Her husband is a fisherman and they live in their own home.

They own a boat which her husband uses to fish with three other men. When they return from fishing, Mele packs the fish, classifies them and takes them to the fish market to sell. People in their village visit their home and buy their fish from them. Fishing is not only the primary source of income for their family, it's also a source of food.

Mele has applied for a loan to buy a new engine for their boat in order for their business to keep running.
