Omar Aquilino
Omar lives in San Ignacio with his wife who is a fruit and vegetable merchant to help out with household expenses since they have children still attending school. His plan toward his family is to improve their living conditions.

He needs the loan to buy fertilizer and supplies to start the crop induction process.
