A loan of $400 helped to purchase one fishing boat and fishing net to expand existing business.


Pov's story

Mr. P. Pov is married and has 6 children: 4 sons and 2 daughters. He has been in the fishing business for almost 20 years. He began fishing by learning from the older generation in his family. When not fishing, he raises vegetables, and his wife sells the fish and vegetables in the local market or in other villages.

He has received three loans from MAXIMA, which has helped him improve his business. He is requesting another loan in the amount of $400 so he can purchase one fishing boat and fishing net, which will enable him to further improve his business and his income.
