Banking on sustainable fishing
In the Pacific Islands, women play a number of critical roles in coastal fisheries. In addition to fishing, they are often responsible for selling fish and managing their family’s money. By helping to build their financial literacy and provide access to microfinance, we hope to ensure that the money they earn from fisheries enhances their economic future. Over time this will hopefully reduce families’ reliance on catching fish, easing the pressure on the heavily exploited reefs.
