Jonas, a Haitian fisherman, makes his living cage fishing on Lake Péligre. Due to runoff from deforestation, the lake has become shallower, making the fish less plentiful. With the training he received from Heifer, Jonas can make as much income in five months with the cage fishing program as he could in one year before. This extra income will help him buy more food and pay his children's school fees.
