Julie's story

Julie is a 35-year-old married woman with 4 children from Talibon, Bohol. The oldest child is 14 while the youngest is 6. She engages in seaweed farming. She has been into seaweed farming for 10 years. Her husband is a fisherman. His catch can generate income and is also used for family consumption.

Julie requested a loan of 6,000 PHP to buy materials like straw, seaweed seedlings, and tissue for the seaweed to grow fast and generate more harvest, and so they can be sold on time.

In the future Julie would like to invest in another business to support her family as well as to finance the education of her children.
