Erlyn has been engaged in her rice farm business for fifteen years and she usually earns P45,000 per crop year. She is willing to work hard every single day to lift her family out of poverty.
Erlyn is married to a farmer who helps her manage their farm. According to her, through the income generated from her business, she had been able to give daily allowances to her children who are currently in school.
At this time, she is requesting a loan of P20,000 to purchase seeds and fertilizers to sustain her rice production. She hopes that she can get the amount she requested to further develop her business.
