Imelda is 46 years old, married to a farmer, and manages a farming business for a living. They patiently improve the growth of their crops in order to gain abundant harvest every cropping season.
She wanted to keep improving her farm but had insufficient funds, that is why she is asking for a loan to buy rice seeds, fertilizers, and insecticides for their farming.
Imelda promised to pay back this loan if it is granted, and will keep maintaining good harvest for the overall welfare of her family's living condition.
