Emali's story

As a mother of 5, Emali (38) appreciates the value of education for her children. Her husband is a fisherman and she sells his catch in the local market. They work hard and earn $60 a day from their joint efforts. Emali will use the loan to buy new gear for their boat, and to increase the volume of fish on her stall. With this investment, she is optimistic they can assure the children’s education and also improve their house.
