At his age of 41, Ignacio still works hard in planting and harvesting rice on his two-hectare rice field. He had been doing it for almost 20 years. Ignacio is an experienced farmer but according to him, he still needs to improve his farming business so that he can save enough funds for the college education of his three children who are still in secondary education.
Ignacio plans to make his business more profitable so he is asking for additional capital to buy three bags of urea and magnum (fertilizer and insecticide) to use in farming. He is asking for PHP 15,000.
Hopefully, he can reach his goal in making his family live fortunately.
