Salome is 46 years old and married. They are farmers living in Amulung, Cagayan, and together they work hard in order to have a good harvest. They usually grow rice and harvest twice a year, with an approximate income of 20,000 PHP (Philippines pesos) per harvest season.

Salome would like to increase their crop production but lacks capital. This encouraged her to borrow a loan of 25,000 PHP from the lenders to buy fertilizers and insecticides for her farm.

In the future, Salome hopes to keep developing a healthy farming business to gain more income for the improvement of their living conditions.
