Rice farming and hog raising are the sources of income of Mary Ann. She is 25 years old married to Levi. They have two children and the eldest is still 5 years old. Together, she and her husband work hard to sustain their family.
Mary Ann requested a loan from Community Economic Ventures, Inc. of 15,000 PHP which will be used to finance her businesses. This will be of great help to fill the needs of her rice field and piggery.
