Romel's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy feed for his fish.
Romel is 49 years old and happily married to Anabel, a housewife. Romel is a hard-working farmer from Cordon, Isabela. He has nine children; three have finished college while the other six children are still in school. Romel and his wife would barely fund their children's education if they only relied on their farming business. That’s why he decided to start a fishery business. Romel has a business that grows fish to sell. He is also selling fingerlings to those who have a fishery business. The cost of feed nowadays is pricey, so Romel needs additional capital to sustain his business. He is humbly asking for a loan of PHP 50,000 to buy feed for his fish. He will do his best to maintain and grow the business.
