Rosie is a 35-year old farmer from the town of San Miguel, Bohol. She is a married woman and has five children ages 7-14. Rosie barely earns 3000 PHP from her farming business. She is asking for a loan to buy fertilizer, pay for labor and pesticides. With this, she will be able to improve the productivity of the farm, thus augmenting her yield and income. In the future Rosie dreams of expanding her farm so that it will generate more revenue. Her children's education is still her priority.
