Lydia's story

Fishing has been a good business for most people in Carles, Iloilo in the Philippines. This includes Lydia, who is a resident of this place. Lydia is 54 years old, married, and has 4 children. 3 of her children are already grown, and her youngest is 16 years old. For 30 years now, Lydia has been engaged in fishing and catching crabs to provide for her children. She is asking for a loan to continue improving her livelihood. Lydia will use the loan to buy fishing nets, nylon, rope, and fishing weights. Lydia finds joy in fishing and helping her husband, who is also a fisherman. In the future, she hopes to have enough savings, be more successful in business, and live a life of abundance.
