Vilma's story

Vilma is 36 years old and is married to a farmer. Vilma also helps her spouse in planting and harvesting rice to sell. They have been in this business for almost 15 years. Vilma usually earns about PHP 10,000 each harvest season. It usually falls during the month of April and November.

Vilma has three children. Two of them go to school. She aims to educate them up to college so that they earn a degree. According to her, she needs to strengthen her business to meet her goal. She is asking for a loan of PHP 15,000 to buy seeds, fertilizers and insecticides use in farming.

Hopefully, she will have good financial management to make her family financially stable so that they will not have to borrow from traders or neighbors to finance their crop.
