Antonia is a 40-year-old married woman and a mother of seven children from Jagna, Bohol. She is a vegetable farmer and has been in this business for more than 10 years now.
Antonia is asking for a loan to buy seedlings and fertilizer for the plants. With this, she will be able to grow and harvest healthy vegetables from the garden thus allowing her to sell more to the market. In the future, Antonia hopes to make her business a success and to save money for the schooling of her children and to repay her loan on time.
