"I am a widow and have 5 children, but that doesn't stop me from dreaming and raising my children well and providing them with a better future," says Genelyn B., a mother of 5 children from Agusan del Sur in Mindanao. "When my husband died, I promised to improve our farm and make it more productive in his honor. My wish for my children is to really study hard to earn a degree, so that when they are older, they will find better jobs for their future children," she added.

Genelyn is asking for a loan of Php 10,000 from CEVI. She will use the loan to buy fertilizer and seeds. The loan will help a lot to increase her harvest and income.
