Mirabel is a 30-year-old married woman from Talibon, Bohol. She has three young children.
She has had a farming business for six years now, together with her husband, who is at the same time a fisherman. Her monthly earnings are about 5,000 PHP. This is the source of her income. This is how they get their daily needs.
Mirabel is asking for a loan to purchase fertilizer, seedlings and medicine. These three items are needed so their crops can grow healthy and to avoid pests that eat the crops.
Success in the farming business is Mirabel’s dream, so that in the future she will be able to send her children to school and assist their needs.
