Marnie is a 21-year-old married woman and mother of two young children from Bien Unido, Bohol. She and her husband have been engaged in a fishing business for several years now. This is the source of their daily income.
Marnie is requesting a loan to buy new fishing nets and fuel for the fishing boat. Through this, her husband will be able to enhance his daily catch thus giving them more fish to sell in the market.
