Edisa is a 44 year old married woman from Talibon, Bohol. She has 3 children aged 24,19 and 15. She engages in fishing and sells her catch. She has been fishing for almost 10 years. Due to lack of materials that is very essential in her daily work, she requests a loan of 10,000 PHP to buy fishing nets, nylon, floaters and lift weights. In the future, Edisa hopes that out of the profits she earned, she would be able to purchase a new fishing boat and continue to support the education of her children.
