Rosario is a 67-year-old married mother of seven grown-up children from Ubay, Bohol. Rosario is a farmer who has been in the business for more than 30 years now. She works with her husband in tilling their farm lot.
Rosario works hard to support her husband in meeting their needs.
Rosario's only dream is to improve her family's way of living and expand their farming ventures. However, she lacks the financial resources to do so. Because of this, she has joined CEVI to avail herself of the loan services offered by the organization to micro-entrepreneurs like her. With this loan, Rosario will be able to buy seedlings, fertilizer and pesticides and pay rent on farm equipment, thus enabling her to make great improvements in her farm.
Rosario hopes that one day, she will be able to improve their way of living and experience the fullness of life.
