Emiteria is 54 years old, married, and had seven children. Only one child still lives with her.

To make a living, Emiteria and her spouse plant and harvest rice to sell. They also raise hogs as an additional source of income.

Emeteria would like to improve the productivity of her rice field, but due to insufficient funds, she hasn't been able to do so.

She then requested additional capital of PHP 15,000 to buy fertilizer, insecticides, and herbicides used in farming. She knows that, through proper application of farm inputs to her rice crops, she will be able to gain better yields and profit in this next harvest season.
