Cherry-Ann is 22 years old, married to Boyet and blessed with two young children. She is a helpful and hardworking mother. She helps her husband maintain their farming business. The couple manages a hectare plot of land, on which they plant and harvest rice. They are very thankful to their in-laws, who gave them the rice field. It serves as their primary source of income.

Cherry-Ann is now taking out a loan of 30,000 Philippines pesos (PHP) in order to improve their farming output. She will buy two bags of rice seeds, fertilizers and two liters of insecticides with the money, which will help to ensure healthier crops.

In the future, Cherry-Ann would like to keep producing abundant crops in order to boost her profits. Additional revenue will be invested in buying pigs to raise and sell as an additional source of income.
