We loan because...
We feel an affinity for entrepreneurs that make their living by fishing, selling fish, or attempting to make their lives better because of their proximity to the ocean, or freshwater locales...

About us
We love fish and/or fishing so much that many of us have chosen to present ourselves on KIVA with a photo of ourselves, holding a fish! We welcome "gals" to join, as well, the name of the team notwithstanding...

We certainly support "sustainable" fishing, but also recognize that sometimes, our "Western" views of resource management may not match the needs of the very desperate folks, in other countries, struggling to make a living, or even providing food for their families ... Our intent is to help the struggling, without regard to their profession or trade. We believe that our lending record well represents that goal, as we are a pretty diverse group, with very diverse lending interests....
