Luzviminda's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped buy fertilizer and seeds.
Luzviminda is 59 years old. She is married and has 3 children. She and her family live in Calamba, Misamis Occidental Philippines. Luzviminda is a farmer and grows vegetables to earn a living. She has been doing this work for two years. She plants a good variety of vegetables both for family consumption and for business. She earns PHP 4,000 every month from her vegetable produce. But the income from her vegetable production is insufficient for their daily consumption, so she must double her production to meet their need. Luzviminda decided to request a loan of PHP 4,000 to buy fertilizer and seeds for the upcoming planting season. Luzviminda is a new member of GDMPC. She hopes that someday she will have a hectare of vegetable plantation.
