Prima of San Miguel, Bohol, has had a rice farming business for 30 years now. She is 57 years old, with one adult son. She works hard on her farm so she can provide for her family's basic needs like food.
She would like for her farming business to be successful. She is asking for a loan to buy fertilizer, insecticides, and a sprayer. These are important so her crops will be resistant to rice diseases. She hopes that in the future, she can continue to sustain her business and save for old age.
