“Work hard to have a good harvest”; this is the principle of life of Jocelyn Q., a 40-year-old resident of Bangar, Solano, Nueva Vizcaya. She is married to Joseph and they have three children, all students. The eldest is in his second year of college, the second is a fourth-year high school student and the youngest is already in pre-school. The couple helps each other manage their farming business, which is the source of income for their family.

Aside from farming, Jocelyn also sells the vegetables that they harvest. She accompanies her husband in planting rice and vegetables on their farm. With her desire to increase their harvest, she is applying for loan of PHP 8,000 for maintaining their farm. She believes that the amount will be very useful for the growth of their business.
