Magdalena's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy seeds, fertilizers, and insecticides.
Magdalena is 46 years old and married to Jomer. They have been blessed with five children. Two are still attending school, and the rest already have their own families. Magdalena and her husband raise crops to generate income. They plant and harvest rice. They usually harvest the rice twice a year, with each harvest earning them a minimum of 30,000 PHP. As of now, Magdalena has insufficient funds to support all of her family's needs, especially the daily needs of her children. She is now asking for a loan of 10,000 PHP to buy seeds, fertilizers, and insecticides used in faming. In the future, Magdalena would like to generate more income to support her family and somehow improve her living conditions.
