Alex is a farmer, and rice is his main crop. His wife Josephine M. also helps him. They have been married since 2001. He utilizes all his harvest to buy the things they need in their home like food, clothing, and the education of his eldest child who is now 6 years old. He is asking Community Economic Ventures Inc. for a loan in the amount of PHP 15,000 which he will use to pay the laborers who work on his farm.
