A loan helped to invest in more supplies of root crops and vegetables.

Edita's story

Edita is a vegetable vendor from Dulag town. She owns a farm and grows vegetables like okra, eggplant, tomatoes and other vegetables that suit a hot climate. She also grows rice, as supplemental income.

She is a 59-year old woman and has no dependent children.

She is facing shortage of funds at the moment. To cope with demand, she has decided to avail a loan - this was used to invest in more supplies of root crops and vegetables.

She has high hopes that this loan will be of great help, thus allowing her to manage her project to become more sustainable.
