Isidra runs a fishpond. She is 44 years old, married with three children. Her oldest child is now aged 22. Like other mothers, she wants to give them a proper education and a bright future.

Isidra grows milkfish in her pond. She sells them to people in her community and sometimes at the market. She applied for a loan of 14,000 PHP, which she will use to buy more milkfish and fish food so her fish will grow.
