Imelda has been an industrious farmer for five years. She was blessed with four children and that’s why she is very inspired to work harder to grow her income. She goes into the field almost daily to make sure that her plants are growing well for the next harvest. Imelda needs additional capital to purchase farm inputs like fertilizers, herbicides and insecticides to sustain the nutrients needed for her pineapple crop to grow as per her plan. She is asking for a loan of PHP 20,000. She manages her time cautiously to take good care of her agriculture businesses. She hopes to continue working to succeed at her endeavors in order to have a better life someday.
