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


A loan helped to buy new nets and her neighbors' catches to sell at the nearby fish market where they will fetch higher prices.


Anacorita's story

Anacorita is 61 years old and married with adult children. She fishes and personally sells their catch from their fishing boat in nearby municipalities. To minimize chances for a low catch, they must have as much fishing equipment as they can. She already has floaters to help guard their fish cages.

Anacorita has been a member in good standing of Paglaum MPC for almost nine years. She has applied for a 6000 PHP loan through Kiva's field partner Paglaum MPC to get new nets. She also wants to buy catches of her neighbors so she can sell more fish at the nearby fish market where they will fetch higher prices.

In the future, Anacorita would like to buy a new fishing boat with savings she has put aside from her daily sales. She wishes to see her children have stable jobs as well.
