Editha works as a farmer. Farming is the business that Editha and her family relies on for a living and corn is their main crop. Their income is just enough for their meals, bills at home, and revolving capital for the business.
Editha wants her business to grow and she is asking for a loan of PHP 15,000. She will use this to buy insecticides and fertilizer for the maintenance of their crops.
Editha hopes to have a good harvest and to have a progressive life for her family.
