Judith G. is a 55-year-old widow who has three grown children, the oldest of whom is 36. Judith earns a living by farming and running a small store. She plants and harvests rice, and her sari-sari (or variety) store contains different products that people in her community need every day. Although her children are all grown now, she still wants to help provide for their household needs.

Judith is hoping to increase her income, and would like to buy seeds and fertilizer for her farm and additional merchandise to sell in her store. To pay for these items, she has applied for a loan of 5,000 PHP from CEVI.
