Anatolia is a 50-year-old married woman from Bohol, a province in the Philippines. Together with her husband, she has been in the fishing business for more than 15 years now. This is the source of their income.
Anatolia is requesting a loan to buy fishing nets, lead weights and fish hooks. With this, her husband will be able to improve his catch thus giving them more fish to sell in the market.
Anatolia hopes to make her business a success, and to save money to reinvest and for her family's expenses.
