Danilo is kind and patient man who lives in Estefania with his family. He enjoys his work in his farming business though he encounters some hardships in maintaining his cornfield, especially when drought or flood occurs. He plants and harvests corn and sells it to traders in the village.
In order to keep producing good harvests, Danilo is now asking for a loan of 40,000 Philippine pesos (PHP) to buy corn seeds, fertilizers, and insecticides to use to maintain good crop standing. He would like to use this to earn more income.
He has four children that attend school, and he aims to keep producing good output for their college education.
