Teresita is 52 years old, married to Armando and has six children. To make a living, the couple raise crops to sell. They have planted and harvested rice for over 10 years now and usually make PHP 15,000 each harvest season. Their profits are used for food and for revolving capital for the farming business.

Teresita is taking the loan so she can invest in making her crops healthier through applying fertilizers and insecticides. She is asking for PHP 20,000 to buy five bags of fertilizers and three liters of insecticides used in farming.

Teresita hopes to achieve an abundant yield every harvest season and to attain financial stability someday.
