Josephine is married and lucky to be married to a kind man who grows rice in their field. Josephine and her husband's priority in life is to send their children to school until college. They want their children to find better jobs and if their children finish their education they will have a better future.
Josephine and her husband are striving to give their children basic necessities and provide for their needs in school. Sometimes she has a difficult time to provide for her children as she also has to pay for the farm's needs. Thus, Josephine is asking for a loan of PHP 35,000 to buy fertilizers and herbicides for her rice. Josephine is hoping for a better yield and to increase her income for the education of their children.
