Jonah Belle
Jonah Belle is 37, married to a farmer and lives harmoniously in a village where the couple plants and harvests rice and vegetables to sell. They help each other in managing their rice farm to increase their yields. They aim to increase their production and income to support the education of their children.

Jonah Belle and her husband want to expand their rice plantation to increase their production. She is asking for a 45,000 PHP loan from ASKI to buy the fertilizers and pesticides needed in rice farming.

Despite the hardship inherent in farming, Jonah Belle and her husband have the determination to achieve their goals. Through patience and hard work the couple believes they can increase their yields and income this coming harvest season.
