Daniel is proud that he is a farmer. He has devoted almost 20 years of endurance and hard work to his rice fields and has been able to earn a living. Daniel is grateful because he has been blessed with four children. His wife manages a sari-sari (variety) store to provide the family with an additional income source.
Daniel is requesting a 27,000 PHP loan to purchase farm supplies such as fertilizer and insecticide. His loan will help him provide proper crop nutrition to obtain a higher harvest yield. Daniel hopes that he will keep producing plentiful crops and earn more income to improve his family's lives and save for emergencies.
