Edna, 40, is a farmer who owns a rice field in Surallah, South Cotabato. She tills the land in order to have a good harvest. She's married to Jelson and has three children. She lacks capital to improve her business; that's why she joined Community Economic Ventures, Inc. to seek a loan. She requested 15,000 Philippine pesos to support her business needs. This loan will enable her to have fertilizers and other farm supplies.
