Restituto is a jolly person who has no other dreams in life than to become a rich man. He means rich in love. Restituto is 47 years old and married with four children. He is a farmer working in the Philippines, planting rice in his two hectares of field.

Due to the increasing price of farm inputs like fertilizers, seeds, insecticides and herbicides, Restituto decided to borrow a loan of PHP 30,000 to buy the farm inputs and pay for the labor of land preparation and planting. He will have a big smile if he receives the loan because he will not think anymore of where he will get the budget to use in farming.
