Diego is a fisherman from the town of Talibon, Bohol. He is a 42-year-old married man and a father of five children.
Diego has been in the fishing business for more than ten years now. He works really hard to support the needs of the family, especially for the schooling of his children.
Diego is asking for a loan to buy fishing nets, lead weights and fuel for the boat. With this, he will be able to improve his catch, thus giving him more fish to sell in the market.
In the future, Diego hopes of making his business successful and sustainable.
