Janet is 37 years old, married, and blessed with three children, all of whom attend school. Her spouse plants and harvests rice to sell, while she works for her niece as a nanny to have extra income weekly. She would like to improve her spouse's farming business and is seeking a loan of PHP10,000 to buy insecticides and herbicides for their rice farming. From this, she will be able to help her spouse improve and develop growth and nutrition for their crops for a better yield someday. She also hopes to keep educating her children and see them as professionals in the future.
