Ivy's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy fishing nets.
Ivy lives in Alcantara, Cebu with her son and husband. As he relies on fishing, she supports him making sure that his tools are ready every day. One of the things necessary for his livelihood is the fishing nets. Ivy is asking for a loan so that she can buy a new fishing net for his use. This would mean ease in fishing and an increase in his catch. Ivy commits to helping her husband in his fishing needs so that together they can have a good life. The income generated will also support the school fees of their 17-year-old son. Ivy is aiming for sustainability.
