Clar and Mar
Trading is a business engaged in selling of all types of dried fish and
pasalubong in Tabo-an Market, Cebu, which are bought to local fishermen, as
their way to support for their livelihood and promotion of local delicacies. It was founded by Clarisas parents which she
inherited after they passed away in 1990.
Items are sold to walk-in buyers and some are delivered to customers in
Bohol, for the residents of the area to be able to access the same products.
Clarisa was able to
maintain her 10 workers from her first loan to NPFC. She continuously provides them with weekly
salary, statutory benefits, together with snacks and living quarter. At the same time, she was able to serve her
buyers in the recent Eucharistic congress event that happened on the first
quarter of 2016.
Since rainy season
is approaching in the Philippines, drying of fish will be a challenge for her
suppliers. Thus, she will be needing
additional working capital loan to purchase more stocks as a preparation
ahead. To be assisted by LendAHand and
local partner NPFC.
