Luisa is a 41-year-old married woman and a mother of five young children from Talibon, Bohol. She has been in the fishing business together with her husband for more than ten years now. This is the source of their income.
Luisa is asking for a loan to buy new fishing nets and buckets for storage. With this, they will be able to enhance their daily catch thus giving them more fish to sell in the market.
In the future, Luisa hopes to improve their business so that it will augment their income. Moreover, she wants to continually send her children to school for better learning.
