Marlon is a rice grower at Nabbotuan. He had been doing this for over ten years. He is now 36 years old, married, and has three young children. His wife works abroad.

Marlon usually gains about PHP 20,000 each harvest season twice a year. He would like to improve his crop production so he is now asking for a loan of PHP 22,000 to buy herbicides and fertilizers to use in farming. This will help increase his output for additional profits.

In the future, Marlon would like to keep earning funds so that his wife will not be working abroad anymore and to be able to continuously give the best education for all his children.
