Rebecca has been married to her husband Rogelio for 36 years. They are blessed with four children. Having their own rice field, Rebecca is very grateful she does not have to till other people’s land like other farmers do. Her farm still needs additional inputs, but she does not let herself worry anymore because she has been a member of Community Economic Ventures, Inc. for a year now. She requested to borrow 12,000 Philippine pesos. This loan will be used to fund her farm. In due time, Rebecca will have an abundant harvest.
