Cristita's story

Cristita is a 62-year-old woman and a resident of Concepcion, Iloilo. Like the other people in the community, she and her husband are also engaged in a fishing business. Her husband is a fisherman and she helps her husband in this business. It has been their source of income for many years. They have seven children who are now adults.
To improve their livelihood, she decided to ask for a loan of 35,000 PHP to buy plywood, paint, wood and nails to repair their fishing boat. A portion will also be used to buy materials for a bobo(a kind of fish trap) and some dried fish. Cristita also sells dried fish for additional income.
In the future, she aspires to augment their livelihood.
