Charie is a married woman from Bien Unido, Bohol, Philippines and the mother of two young children. She has been engaged in the fishing business together with her husband for several years now. This has been the source of their income.
Charie is asking for a loan to buy new fishing nets, lead weights, floaters and so on. With this, her husband will be able to catch more, thus giving them more fish to sell in the market. Charie hopes to make their fishing business a success.
