A loan of $250 helped to buy fertilizers and insecticides used in farming.


Carmencita's story

Carmencita is 55 years old, married, and has five children. Together, she and her husband keep improving crop production through fertilizers and insecticides that nourish crops. Her income of around P10,000 each harvest season is just enough to sustain the family's consumption and sometimes, they lack financially in sustaining their crops.

Carmencita is now asking for a loan of P10,000 to buy fertilizers and insecticides used in farming.

With a plentiful harvest, Carmencita will be able to earn more profits that will help them upgrade the family's living conditions.
