Violeta lives in Pinopoc where she and husband have a farming business in supporting the needs of her family. She is 51 years old and has three children. She usually gets an income of about PHP 20,000 each harvest, and this was used in sustaining her family’s daily needs.
She is now asking for a loan that will be used in her planting season for buying the necessary seeds, fertilizers and insecticides.
In the future, Violeta hopes to keep improving her farming output in order to gain more profits. Additional profits will be saved for the future expenses of her family.
