Nenita is 54 years old and is blessed to have two children. She lives with her family in a village.

To generate income, she grows vegetables. She explains that she typically earns approximately 25 PHP per day from her farming activities. She aims to earn more income so that she can better meet her family's everyday needs and save for her children's future.

At this time, she would like to plant more vegetables in order to increase her production, but she lacks the capital to do so. So, she is seeking a loan in the amount of 15,000 PHP to buy seeds and fertilizers. She believes that the loan proceeds will enable her to increase her crop yields. And harvesting a large volume of vegetables will then allow her to generate additional income to support her family.
