Imelda is 46 years old. She is married and has three children. Imelda and her spouse manage a hectare plot of land on which they cultivate rice. Aside from rice farming, Imelda also raises hogs to sell as an additional source of income. Monthly, she earns about 10,000 Philippine Pesos (PHP).

Imelda hopes to improve her crop production; for this reason, she has asked for a loan of 25,000 PHP to buy fertilizers and pay labor costs for the farming. If the rice crop has enough sustenance, the harvest will be plentiful. From this, Imelda will attain a continuous profit she can use for her children's education, which is her only legacy to them.
