Ciriaco is 51 years old, a college graduate who has not had the privilege to look for better employment due to the employment crisis of the country. But in spite of this, he has still developed his own family through his farming business. As of now, he has four children who are asking assistance from him.

So Ciriaco wants to grow his profit for his children and grandchildren. For this reason, he is now asking for a loan of PHP 25,000 to buy seeds, fertilizers and pesticides. He hopes that his crops will not be destroyed by any disastrous insects or typhoons.

The crops will enable him to earn a higher income that can be used for his family's future as well as to save for continuing his business.
