They have been doing this for 10 years to support their daily expenses and the educational needs of their children. Editha and her husband usually earn PHP 12,000 every harvest season. The earnings are just enough to meet their needs so Editha is requesting additional capital for their farming business. She wants a loan of PHP 30,000 to buy seed, fertilizer and pesticides needed for her rice growing. She hopes that her yield will increase through the loan she is requesting.
