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

A loan helped to buy fishing/diving gear and an outboard motor for a fishing business.

Seruwaia's story

Seruwaia has always been hospitable, so when she settled down with her husband, it came as no surprise that her in-laws were always visiting them. Having a husband who is adept at fishing and diving, Seruwaia would ensure they always treated their guests to meals made with nothing but the freshest fish and farm fresh vegetables. Frequently they would host their nieces and nephews who visited during the school holidays.

It was during one of these holidays that Seruwaia had a light bulb moment. Her sister-in-law was marveling at the freshness of the fish and relayed how her work mates would make the long trip to villages to buy fresh fish from fishers.

Seruwaia hopes to receive a loan so she can sell her husband’s catch. She plans to buy fishing and diving gear, along with an outboard motor for their boat. She also plans to advertise her business on social media platforms.

By securing a loan, Seruwaia will be able to improve their standard of living.
