Evelyn is 43 years old, married, and has three children. One of her children is attending college. With her spouse, they manage a farming business, planting and harvesting rice to sell. Evelyn usually gains about PHP 15,000 to buy pesticides and insecticides used in farming.
Evelyn would like to increase crop production for her family's sustenance, especially for education. That is why she is now asking for a loan of PHP 25,000 to buy pesticides and insecticides for use in farming. This will help ensure a healthy growth of crops and an abundant crop harvest.
Evelyn hopes to maintain productive yields every harvest season and to become a successful farmer someday, for the overall welfare of her family.
