A loan of $1,025 helps to purchase a commercial chest freezer.


Tarusila's story

Fishing is one of the many skills taught by older generations to survive in life. Tarusila learned this life skill that has helped feed her family over the years.

Tarusila has 3 children. The eldest is going to attend university so she must enhance her fishing skills. She is seeking a loan to stabilize the business.

Tarusila needs to purchase a commercial top chest freezer. This will allow her to confidently catch a large amount of fish and store them while maintaining the constant temperature of the product.

With the purchase of the freezer, Tarusila will be able to earn a lot of money and support the higher education of her child.

Tarusila will be grateful if given the loan opportunity.
