Melieta Orario lives in the Philippines with her family. Her family was struggling financially and needed another source of income, so Melieta joined Opportunity International and received a loan which she used to start a fish vending business. With the profits from her newly founded fish vending business, Melieta was able to provide for her family’s needs. As her business grew, she bought greater volumes of fish, lowering her marginal costs and increasing her profit margins. She is thankful for Opportunity International and the positive changes it brought to her life, and she believes her life will continue to improve as Opportunity continues to help her business grow. Melieta plans to use her current loan for the expansion of her business, hoping for an even better income and quality of life for her family.
