34-year old Rose Jean N. lives in Surallah, South Cotabato where she has hog raising and rice farming businesses. She started her businesses in 2000. Each year she can harvest three times but sometimes a crop fails due to pest attack. She also earns PHP 300-800 per day in her sari-sari (variety) store that helps provide for the basic needs of her family.
Rose Jean is requesting a loan of PHP 12,000 from Community Economic Ventures, Inc. which will enable her to buy farm inputs, pig feed, and groceries for her sari-sari store.
