Marissa is 20 years old and single. She is from San Miguel, Bohol. She wants to help her family, especially her brothers and sisters, to improve their lives. She is asking for a loan to buy pesticides, fertilizers and seedlings to continue rice farming on their land. This will serve as additional capital so she can proceed with land tilling and rice planting for an income. Her profit will then be used to provide a healthy diet for her family and reinvestment in the same business.
