Raquel is 39 years old and married to Ricardo. They have no children yet but are hoping to have one soon.

Raquel and Ricardo own a one-hectare plot of land on which they plant and cultivate rice. They have been farming for over two years now and usually earn about 38,000 PHP twice a year. It is their only source of income.

Raquel would like to improve their farm so as to earn more from it. She would like to ensure that Ricardo and she have healthier rice crops but have insufficient funds now to do so. Therefore she is asking for a loan of 40,000 PHP to buy fertilizer, insecticides and pesticides.

Someday, with consistent effort, determination and patience, Raquel and Ricardo will achieve economic stability.
