A loan of $1,175 helps to buy large bulks of canteen goods and storage containers.


Marisilina's story

The recent hit of cyclone Yasa will not deter Marisilina from fulfilling her dream business. Seeing that there is no corner store in the neighboring villages she wants to seize the opportunity by starting up a canteen business.

Marisilina kindly pursues a loan to start off. She is convinced that the new canteen will bring in many customers hence much profit gained. The money needed will cause her to buy large bulks of canteen goods and storage containers.

She is willing to labor hard to sow good seeds so that she may obtain a good crop in the near future.


This loan is special because:

It provides emergency funding to clients affected by tropical cyclone Yasa.
