Renato started to cultivate a hectare plot of land since he was 18. He grows rice to sell. The income from this business helps provide needs of his younger sister still in her studies. He has sacrificed not to enter into college anymore in giving way for his sister. Renato is now 21 years old. Though he only finished high school, he finds a way to help his parents gain an income.
He had an insufficient fund now so he would like to ask for P25,000 to buy corn seeds and fertilizers. He would like to improve his corn production so that he can really help educate his sister.
