Josephine's story

Josephine is 43 years old, a loving mother of five children. She has owned and managed a fish-vending business in their village for 7 years and six months as her main source of income with the help of her husband as a fisherman. Her net income from this business was spent on their daily household expenditures. Due to the low supplies of fish nowadays caused by lock down, prices of fish from suppliers are increasing. Hence, she needs an additional capital of PHP 5,000 to use as revolving capital for the business. Josephine will purchase fish to sell around the villages. She's hoping that her business will continue to improve and become more profitable.
