Editha is from the small village of Villa Domingo. She is 54 years old and married with four children.
Editha is willing to work hard to lift her family from poor living. That's why she is busy managing their farm land with her husband.
Editha has been engaged in her business for 30 years. She usually earns about 25,000 Philippine pesos (PHP) every crop season. Right now, she is asking for a loan of 30,000 PHP to buy fertilizers and seedlings to sustain the proper growth of her business.
She believes that, through her loan, she can obtain the farm supplies that she needs for her business. She also hopes to increase her income to secure the needs of her family.
