Anita is proud that she belongs to the Igorot tribe. She is 55 years old and a widowed mother with five adult children. At her age, Anita still has her healthy body and does field work that is her source of income. She also shares her belief that the Igorot are physically fit. Anita manages her farming business and plants and harvests rice. Her business has allowed her to provide for her children in spite of being alone. This is why Anita loves farming.

Anita is requesting a 25,000 PHP loan to sustain her farm and so she won’t lose her source of income despite her lack of financial resources. She will use her loan to buy fertilizer, insecticide, and herbicide for her crops and as well as seed to plant.
