Josephine is a widow having two children. She works hard in order to earn a living. It's been nine years since her husband died due to stroke. Josephine's situation pushes her to strive hard for her family's welfare.
Josephine inherited her one hectare of farmland from her parents. She is really grateful because she can manage her farming business smoothly. Since she's the only breadwinner of the family, Josephine is in need of additional capital amounting to 20,000 PHP which will be use to buy fertilizer and for payment of hired laborers who will perform some farming activities. She hopes that she could get this loan amount so she can produce better yields which enables her to attain her goal in life and so with her business.
