Chery-ann's family lives comfortably at the barrio though they are less fortunate. At her young age of 21 she had already been blessed with two children. She only finished high school so Cherry-ann has not able to seek for employment. Cherry-ann helps her husband manage a farming business in the barrio. They had been doing this for almost three years to make a living and earns about P12,000 every harvest season. The harvest season falls during the month of April and November.
Cherry-ann is now asking for a loan of P30,000 to buy seeds, fertilizers and pesticides used in farming.
She hopes to produce plentiful harvest and achieve financial stability.
