Fe is 60 years old, single, and currently residing harmoniously together with her mother in the village of Culing Centro. She has owned a vegetable yard near their house for almost six years. When harvest season comes they reap many vegetables such as eggplant, tomatoes, string beans, and squash. Her vegetables are delivered to different towns, and sometimes to their public market. In this business she's earning an income amounting to about Php 8,000 every month. Fe would like to have a loan of Php 18,000 to purchase fertilizers for her vegetable yard. She's hoping that her requested amount will be granted so that her business will become more profitable.
