Show borrowers from:

Savon KOY

Cambodia

Savon and her husband grow paddy rice on their plot of land, but their income is too low to cover all daily household expense. To provide for two school age sons, they work as day labourers for other farmers. With $4 daily income, Savon (56) has decided to raise a loan to buy a motorbike, which they will use to get to further location where labour is needed.

Annabelle Gaudiel

Philippines

Using land next to her home, Annabelle plans to set up a piggery to earn some extra income. Her husband is a farmer but earns barely enough to support the family. She seeks a loan to buy her first piglets. She will feed them on food scraps and crop wastes to fatten them up over the coming months. When mature, Annabelle expects to sell the porkers for a good profit, which she will reinvest in the piggery.

Ma.Lelanie Fraba

Philippines

It’s hard to make ends meet from Lelanie’s income as a vegetable wholesaler. She makes about $10 a day buying vegetables in bulk from local growers and wholesaling to town markets and the city. Hers is a low-margin business and she needs to move produce quickly. So Lelanie is seeking a loan to boost her stock to a higher level. Ma Lelanie believes she can shift this increased volume and boost her daily takings, and that this will let her send her children back to school.

Lend

Losilini Takai

Tonga

At 26 years old, Losilini is the main breadwinner in her family. Her husband’s income is seasonal due to the nature of his work as a fruit picker. Although she hasn’t got a child yet but she has obligations of her own as well as her parents, who often borrow from her for basic provisions. She seeks a loan to buy more stock for her canteen – bread for sandwiches and burgers, cooking oil, gas bottle refill and ice blocks – and would like to add drinks as well. Losilini believes this boost in capital will increase the profit of her business.

Lend

Anabelleza Semic

Philippines

At 56, Annabelleza is sole provider for three children, selling fish to support them. Despite their hardship, she insists her children continue their studies, believing it the best legacy she can provide. Annabelleza seeks a loan to buy more fish and what she cannot sell each day she will dry for later sale. Dried fish is a popular food in the Philippines – it is a cheap and tasty source of protein. This dedicated mother believes her fish hawking can sustain her family, today and later in their life.
