At her age of 47, Norma still strives hard to generate an income for her family. She is married to a farmer and hand-in-hand they work untiringly to make their crop produce abundant harvests every harvest season in April and November.
She is now asking for a loan to maintain her crop. She is asking for PHP 15,000 to buy fertilizers and insecticides used in farming.
Norma and her husband wish to achieve their goal for abundant harvests so that they can make improvements on their small house and especially for the education of their three children.
