Evangeline and her husband are managing their rice farming business. They share ideas in growing their rice crops to have a productive outcome. They keep on working hard to support the education of their children.
They are times when Evangeline cannot provide for all their farming needs due to lack of funds which sometimes has some effect on their crops. In line with this, she is now asking for financial assistance of lenders for a loan of PHP 30,000 to buy fertilizer, herbicides and to pay the labor costs on their farm. Evangeline is hoping that by providing for the needs of the farm, she can have a better yield and get a higher income.
