Arlan is peacefully living with his spouse and four children. He is proud to be a farmer because through his business, he is able to make a living. He is thankful because his wife is supportive in running their corn farming business.
He and his wife both work in their corn field to be able to produce good corn crops. He plans to buy necessary farm inputs to ensure proper growth of his crops, but the profits gained from his previous harvest is not enough. With regards to this situation, he is applying for a loan of PHP 45,000. He hopes to obtain this requested loan amount to be able to educate his children and improve their way of living.
