Lory farms for a living. She is 30 years old and is married with three children; her oldest child is aged 10. She dreams of having all her children graduate from college and find decent jobs for themselves.
Lory spends her daytime maintaining the farm, making sure it will be productive. Like other farmers, she wants to grow her farm so she would also earn more.
Lory said that she and her husband are now preparing their farm for planting. She needs farm inputs for it such as seed, fertilizer and other items. She asked for a loan from CEVI of Php 14,000 which she would use to acquire the farm inputs.
Receiving this loan will be truly helpful to Lory’s goal of being productive.
