Delia is a 38 year old married woman living in Getafe, Bohol. She has been engaged in the fishing business for more than three years now together with her husband. This is their main source of income. Delia works hard to support her husband in meeting the needs of their family. She is asking for a loan to buy new fishing nets, lead weights, hooks and fuel for the boat. With this, her husband will be able to improve his catch, thus giving them more fish to sell in the market. In the future, Delia hopes to make their business a success and more sustainable.
