To make a living, Joseliza has been engaged in corn production for eight years. She is also engaged in a business selling different kinds of street food based in her home. She is willing to work hard every single day to lift her family from poor living.
Joseliza is married to a farmer and has two school-aged children. According to her, through the income generated from her business, she had been able to give daily allowances to her children in school.
At this time, she is requesting a loan of PHP 30,000 to purchase seeds and fertilizer to sustain her corn production. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve/expand it.
