Cesario, a 50-year-old married father of five school-aged children, wants all of his children to finish their studies, as this is the only thing of value he can give to them. He has been a farmer for almost 30 years, raising crops and livestock, usually earning a net profit of P 40,000 per harvest season.

Now requesting a loan of P20,000 to buy fertilizers and pesticides for rice production, Cesario's goal is to increase his rice production to earn more income to finance the school fees of his children. He believes that his efforts and sacrifices will someday bear fruit.
