Elizabeth E. is 47 years old and married to Germinihildo. They work together in their farm. They have three children: Joe - 28 years old, elementary graduate; Janicell - 25 years old, college graduate and currently working as a teacher; and Jimson - 22 years old, also an elementary graduate. Elizabeth is thankful to God for giving her a wonderful family. Alhough her two sons are not interested in studying, they are very responsible and are helping them in the farm.

Elizabeth aims to develop their farmland so that they will be able to increase their income. However, they do not have the needed capital for this so she requests a loan of PHP15,000 (USD$325). The money will be used to sustain the needed farm inputs such as fertilizers.

One of their main goals in life is to really improve their farmland. That is why they never get tired of cultivating it, because they know that this will really give them a better future.
