Hilario is a fisherman from the town of Ubay, Bohol. He is a married man and has been in the fishing business for more than 15 years. Hilario works hard to support the needs of the family, especially for the future schooling of his children. Hilario is asking for a loan to buy new fishing nets, lead weights and fish hooks. With this, he will be able to increase his daily catch which gives him more fish to sell in the market. Hilario dreams of making his fishing venture a success and a stable source of income.
