Anabel was involved in an early marriage and has a child now. She is married to a farmer named Gilbert. They live at Lanna. The couple are both farmers, planting and harvesting rice to sell to traders. They have been in the farming business for over five years. She wants to improve her crop yield, and that requires additional capital. On account of this, she is asking for 20,000 PHP to buy fertilizers and insecticides, and to pay for land cultivation for the farming business.
Someday, she hopes to harvest crops profitably and gain good income from the business. It will help her to save funds for her child's education. She also aims to lift her family out of the poor living conditions they have.
