Corazon believes that life must go on, whether you fail or succeed. She is 48 years old and sells AVON products. She is lucky to be married to a retired armed forces serviceman of the Philippines and they have three children.
Corazon and her husband work together for the success of their rice farming business. They always pray to the almighty to get a better yield and do their best to achieve this. At present, Corazon needs additional capital to continue operating her farm.
Corazon is asking for a loan of P25,000 to buy seeds, fertilizers and insectides. Her ambition is to continue running her farm, gain income and expand her farm area to increase her income. She would be able to send her children to college and they could finish their studies if she achieves her ambition.
