A loan helped to buy new fishing tackle.


Mereseini's story

Mereseini’s husband is a fisherman and the family’s income depends on his catch. This, in turn, depends on the quality of his gear, which deteriorates with prolonged use.

Mereseini (54) seeks a loan to buy new fishing nets. This could double her husband's catch, allowing them to sell more fish and possibly extend their sales into a neighboring village. The couple dreams of one day owning a business that has outlets in many locations.


This loan is special because:

It provides women with credit in a country where alternative financing is extremely scarce.
