Esmeralda has been engaged in a fishing business together with her husband for more than 30 years now. She lives with her family in CPG, Bohol. Esmeralda works hard to support her husband in their fishing business.
Esmeralda is asking for a loan to buy new fishing nets, lead weights, hooks and buckets. With this, her husband will be able to improve his catch, thus giving them more fish to sell in the market.
Esmeralda hopes to make their business successful and sustainable. Moreover, she wants to save money for the school expenses of her children and to repay her loan on time.
