Lucrecia is 55 years old and living peacefully in Lanna with her spouse and children. The couple have eight children; one is still attending school. Others have settled into marriage and were not able to finish their degrees due to financial instability. They were able to make PHP 15,000 each harvest season twice a year. It was just enough for the family's sustenance.

She would like to increase crop production and is now borrowing PHP 20,000 to buy farm inputs (fertilizers and pesticides) used in farming.

In the future, Lucresia would like to achieve a plentiful harvest and save income to use in times of emergencies.
