George, 58 years old, is married and has been blessed with four children. He used to be a driver of a hand tractor but nowadays he chose to be a farmer. He has his own fields where he grows rice. Once it’s harvested he sells it in the market in order to obtain a higher income and be able to cover his household expenses. He is a father who is concerned about his family because at his age, he is still cultivating rice fields to sustain the needs of his family. He would like to expand his rice fields through cultivating the areas which are not yet cultivated.

George is asking for additional capital amounting to P40,000 to buy fertilizer and insecticides to improve his land’s productivity. He hopes that he can improve his rice fields to be able to have good produce and increase his yields.
