Myrna Sartaguda

Philippines

Myna is a fish vendor and earns about $5 a day selling daing – fish that has been marinated and sun-dried, giving it a unique flavour and storage life up to a year.Myrna recognises that if she could hold more inventory, she could easily move this and boost her daily takings. So she seeks a loan to increase her working capital and volume of fish. With the additional stock, she hopes to make up to $8 a day, with which she can sustain the needs of her family.

Romalie Delarmente

Philippines

On a good day, Romalie can earn about $5 selling tasty bbq snacks in her village. However, even when added to her husband’s salary, her takings are insufficient to cover their growing family’s needs. She seeks a loan to buy more meat so that she can expand her snack grill. Any increase in sales and profits will benefit her family and relieve some of her financial worries

'Amelia Tui

Tonga

Like many Pacific islanders, Amelia Tui (28) has traditional weaving skills. She wants to exploit her expertise to earn money and help support her three young children. Her husband is a carpenter but his income is not enough for the excess needs of the family. Amelia has applied for a loan to buy more yarn and other materials, to increase her output and the income she can make. She is confident that by expanding her production, she will be able to boost her sales. Amelia hopes that more income will help improve their children’s education and expand their house.

'Alisi To'a

Tonga

With four mouths to feed, Alisi To’a supplements her husband’s income by making tutu. This is the inner bark of the paper-mulberry tree that is used to make tapa, the traditional Tongan cloth. It is sun-dried then soaked, before being beaten into the thin pulp that becomes the finished fabric. Alisi could increase her output if she had the capital to buy more raw materials. She will use her loan to do this, and hopes to generate enough cash to ensure her children receive the care and education they need.
