Mary Jane's story
Mary Jane is a 23-year-old rice and corn farmer from the community of Talibon, Bohol. She has two children ages two and three to support from her businesses of farming rice and operating a Sari-Sari store. Mary Jane's partner works as a gasoline boy. They are struggling to keep their farm while meeting the needs of her children. She is asking for a loan to buy fertilizer, seedlings, canned goods, detergent, coffee, milk and chips. She knows that with proper care and good growth, attributed to fertilizer, she can be successful in her farming. In the future, she hopes to send her children to school.
