Agnes P. is 48 years old and happily married to Rosito. They live a simple and happy life in Barangay Bangar, Solano, Nueva Vizcaya. As a fruit of their patience and sacrifices in farming, two of their children successfully graduated from college in their chosen profession and are now working abroad, while their youngest is still studying in college. She hopes that their farming business will become successful for them to combat life’s difficulties.

She and her husband are working together in cultivating their farm. They plant rice and vegetables. To assist her husband in their farming needs, she is now borrowing a loan of PHP 20,000 for their farm maintenance. The amount will be of big help to purchase their needed agricultural inputs such as fertilizers, hybrid seeds and pesticides. She hopes that, in the coming harvest season, they are able to have a higher yield. She prays for good weather since rain and other calamities are some of the factors that affect their harvest.
