Mercy's story

Mercy is a rice grower. She is 37 years old, married and has four children. Her oldest child is now 18 years old. As a rice grower, she has to keep herself strong and healthy to endure the hard work required on the farm. She and her husband help each other to make their farm productive. When not busy on the farm, Mercy’s husband drives a motorcycle to transport people around their community. It brings income into their household, which Mercy is really thankful for. Mercy would like a loan of 6,000 Philippine pesos to buy seeds and fertilizers and other farm supplies she is lacking.
