Salvador is willing to work hard every single day, to give his family a good quality of life. He devotes himself full-time to his corn farm business. He has 10 years' experience in this field. He is 49 years old, married and has four children. His wife helped him to cultivate their farmland to make sure that they would be able to receive and earn a higher income.
For this reason, Salvador wants to borrow a loan of PHP 50,000 to purchase farm inputs such as fertilizers, seedlings and insecticides. He hopes that he can receive the amount that he has requested to further develop his farmland.
