Evelyn strives hard to give her children their basic necessities and to provide for their children's needs in school. She hopes that her children will someday finish a degree in college and have decent jobs.
Evelyn has had a farming business planting rice in their field for many years. Sometimes she has difficulties sustaining her farm needs as she also provides her children's allowances in school. In this connection, Evelyn is asking for a loan of PHP43,000 to buy fertilizers and pesticides that she will apply to her crop. Evelyn is hoping for a better yield and to increase her income to further sustain her children's education.
