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

A loan helped to buy new fishing nets.

Katrina's story

Katrina is a mother of six children. Her husband is a fisherman and they live in their own home. She and her husband own and operate fishing and farming businesses. However, this loan is specific to their fishing business. They need new fishing nets, so Katrina is applying for an SPBD loan to use as capital for the business. Her husband is responsible for catching the fish and Katrina’s task is to sell the fish.

Their two businesses are the only sources of income for their family. Katrina dreams of providing for her children’s education so that they can have a better and brighter future.
