Margie's story

Margie lives in Trinidad, Bohol. She is 41 and has two school-aged children. Margie is engaged in rice farming, hog raising and even poultry. She focused on raising Native Chicken. This type of chicken is highly valued as considered to be better-tasting than the other type. She is asking a loan to maintain her business and buy feed, rice seedlings and fertilizer for her farm. Margie aimed at making her business sustainable and successful so that she can pay for her children's needs in terms of food and school fees.
