Enedina is 28 years old, married and blessed with two children. She is a housewife and at the same time a farmer, because she is helping her husband in operating their farming business. She was thankful for having a very persistent and hard-working husband, because she is not in difficulty in operating her business in the field.
To develop their business, she is asking for a loan of PHP 25,000 to purchase corn seeds, fertilizers and pesticides as maintenance. She plans to invest the profits from this loan for emergency purposes and for the future of her children.
