Antonia is a 55-year-old rice farmer from the municipality of Alicia, Bohol. She is married and has a daughter who is 16 years old. Her husband also works on the farm. This is their only source of livelihood.
Antonia is requesting a loan to buy fertilizer, seedlings and insecticide to sustain her farm. A loan will be a great help since it will take another four months before she can reap the fruit of all their hard work.
In the future, she hopes to have a good life from her business.
