Pedra is a 53-year-old married woman and a mother of four children. She is from Bien Unido, Bohol. She has been engaged in the rice farming business for more than eleven years now. Her husband also works as a farmer.
Pedra gives her best in helping her husband in tilling their farm lot.
Pedra aims to make their farming business a success, but lacks the capital to do so. She is asking for a loan to buy fertilizer and pesticides for the farm. Through this, they will be able to produce a good quality harvest, thus improving their yield and profit.
