Mary Jean
According to Mary Jean, " patience and hard work" are the only weapons to fight poverty. She is now 39 and a mother of two. They live harmoniously in a village, planting and harvesting rice and vegetables for sale. They work hard and endure hardships to earn income and provide their family needs. They aim to increase their crop yields and income to be able to finance the tuition fees and allowances of their children who are now at college level.

Due to inadequate capital, Mary Jean is asking for a loan of P15,000 to buy fertilizers and pesticides to sustain their rice production. She is hoping that this loan will help them to increase their crop yields. She believes that someday, their business will grow and become fruitful as long as they continue to work and strive.
