A loan of $500 helped buying fertilizers and pesticides for her rice plants.

Tessie's story

Tessie lives in the village where the primary source of living is rice farming. She and her husband are also in that activity. They have been doing it for almost ten yearns now. With the desire to make that business even more productive, Tessie wants a loan amounting to P20,000. If granted, this amount will serve as additional capital for buying fertilizers and pesticides for her rice plants. Tessie hopes that through the amount, her yield will increase, which will also result in a higher profit. She believes that with a higher profit she will be able to send her three children for a college education.
