Perpetua
Perpetua is a 66-year-old woman who has been farming in the community of Talibon, Bohol. She is married with six grown children. Perpetua is asking for a loan to buy fertilizer for her farm and pay for labor so she can be prepared for the season. The use of fertilizer attributes to a high yield of her crops, so she wanted to make sure that this is available in time. Her income will be used to buy her family's healthy diet and re-invest in the same business.
