Salvador is 36 years of age and married with three children. He has grown rice for 10 years and he usually earns P22,000 for every crop.
Salvador is a responsible father who's willing to do everything possible to lift his family from poor living conditions. His wife’s name is Maribel. She raises hogs and helps Salvador cultivate their rice field.
At this moment, Salvador wants to obtain a loan of P50,000 to buy farm input such as fertilizers, rice seedlings and to pay labor costs for planting.
Salvador hopes the loan will lead to a greater rice harvest so he can better provide for his family.
