Jenny lives in the village of Barangay Natappian West Solana, Cagayan. Her husband works as a simple farmer. While free from farming duties, Jenny operates their old “kalesa” transport business that still exists in Solana, Cagayan. A “kalesa” is a cart which is pulled by a horse. Its use dates back to the Spanish regime in the Philippines. Jenny says that the “kalesa” is helpful to their daily living. It does not require the expense of gasoline, which is also a great contribution to the environment. She further said that this type of transportation will last for a long time and is something they can rely on.

She is asking for a loan of PHP 13,000 for business necessities such as improvement of the cart used in their transportation business. The cart they use is old and is in need of repair in order to give their passenger comfort as they ride. Jenny is 24 years old and soon will have a child to support with its education and basic needs.
