Alpha wants to prove that through farming she and her husband will uplift their standard of living. Alpha has four children who are attending school. Alpha always advises her children to learn to tighten their belts. They have to minimize their expenditures because someday they will enter the college level of education.
With regards to their farming business, Alpha wishes to get a high yield from the crops. Alpha has difficulties in financing their farm. This reason pushed her to request a loan of PHP 30,000 to buy seeds, fertilizers and pay for the labor cost in farming.
Alpha and her husband continue to improve their practices in farming to further achieve her wish.
