Rosemarie is a mother who is blessed with seven children. While doing the household chores, she finds time to help her husband manage their corn and vegetable plantation in order to insure there is a good harvest. Despite the hardships in farming, they are able to endure because they want to earn and save to satisfy their needs and support their children's education. As responsible parents, they want to educate their children so that they are able to find good jobs someday.

They would like to expand their corn plantation, but they have inadequate capital. Therefore, Rosemarie is asking for additional capital in the amount of 25,000 PHP to buy corn seed, fertilizers, insecticides and pay labor costs required to plant corn. They believe that this loan will help them improve the business, and they hope that they will have a fruitful harvest.
