Being a responsible mother, Vivian is concerned with the future of their children. Therefore, Vivian aimed to become financially stable in order to give their children a bright future. She is 32 years old and was blessed with three children. Since farming is the main source of their living, they work hard and strive harder to increase their yields and thereby earn a higher income to satisfy their needs and to finance the education of their children.
Due to financial difficulties, she is asking an additional capital of PHP15,000 to buy fertilizers and pesticides to sustain their rice production. She believes that the loan will help them to increase their production and income. She mentioned that hard work and sacrifices are the only way to attain success.
In the future, Vivian dreams that their business will grow and their children will all graduate from college.
