Violeta and her husband Cesar are both farmers. Violeta also sells root crops derived from their harvest. They are blessed with five children; however, due to a lack of financial resources, they were not able to send most of their children to school to pursue their studies.

Violeta is requesting a loan of PHP 7,000.00 to purchase farm inputs including a variety of seeds and fertilizer and to maintain her vegetable-vending and root crop business. She aspires to develop their businesses so they can meet the needs of their family, and hopes that their continuous earnings will continue to sustain their enterprises. As well, Violeta prays that their children will all have better lives compared to what they have at the moment.
