Madelyn is 35 years old, married, and has two children who are at school. She and her spouse are farmers, and together they plant and harvest rice to sell. They generate about PHP 20,000 each harvest season, twice a year. Their earnings go for education fees, meals, and revolving capital in the business.

Madelyn is now asking for a loan of PHP 40,000. She will invest the loan funds in maintaining the farming business, so it will produce an abundant harvest someday. She will buy fertilizers and insecticides for use in farming. She hopes to keep achieving good harvests in her farm business and providing good education to her children until college.
