Henry's story

Fishing is one of the sources of income for most communities in Concepcion, Iloilo. Henry, a 48-year-old fisherman, has been engaged in this livelihood for more than 17 years. Fishing helps him to raise his six children, aged 17, 14, 13, 10, nine and five years old. His wife stays at home and takes good care of them. Aside from fishing, Henry is also engaged in a hog-raising business and charcoal selling. Henry is a very hardworking person. Thus, he wants to improve his livelihood and have a better means of living. This is the reason why Henry is requesting a loan. He needs a loan amount to improve his catch and to be able to augment his earnings. With this loan, Henry will buy a fishnet and fishing boat frame.
