Catalina's story

Catalina lives in an island called Concepcion from the province of Iloilo. She is 52 years old, is married, and has an 11-year-old dependent. Fishing has been their source of livelihood from the beginning since her husband is a fisher. She helps her husband by selling the fish that he catches. That is why she wanted to improve this business.

She is asking for a loan to buy a fishing net, help pay for boat repair and buy a new engine. Through this loan, Catalina and her husband will be able to continue their fishing activity, thus allowing them to improve their catch as well. In the future, Catalina plans to continue to make improvements so that her family's life will be better.
