Vilma is 53 years old, married and lives in Enrile with her family. In their farming business, she and her spouse plant and harvest rice to sell. They patiently manage the business to acquire good income for the education of her children. She wants to increase crop production, but to achieve this, she needs enough farm inputs for sustenance. So, Vilma is asking for a loan of $475 (20,000 PHP) to buy fertilizers, herbicides and insecticides to use in farming. This loan will be a great help for her to attain income stability for her family's welfare.
