A loan of $150 helped to purchase a crab net and repair the pump boat.


Gomez's story

Gomez A. is engaged in selling crabs. He is a 43-year-old father of three children and a fisherman. His own catch is what he sells to provide for all their needs. Every night Gomez goes out fishing, he throws his nets in the sea and hopes to have something to catch. He wants to work hard to send all of his children to college so that when they are older, they will have better lives for their future children. Now, Gomez sells crabs because he can earn more with this kind of endeavor. Aside from the fish he sells, he also markets crabs.

Gomez is requesting a loan of 6,000 PHP from CEVI. He will use the loan to purchase crab nets and repair the pump boats. In this way, the boat will be used for fishing, and he can deliver his catch to other places.

CEVI helps fishermen sustain their livelihoods and businesses. Their being part of CEVI entitles them for easy access to CEVI credit assistance, trainings, and insurance coverage.
