They plant rice and vegetables that they sell in the market. Jennelyn also buys and sells other various vegetables to sell.
She always wanted to have big sales and has hoped to obtain a loan as added capital in the business. Therefore, she is asking the amount of PHP 20,000 to buy bitter melon, eggplants, string beans, bananas, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, and other kinds of vegetables to sell.
