Born in the village of Villa Luz, in the province of Isabela, Prudencio lives with his wife and their four children. Recognized by the people of his neighborhood as a serious man, Prudencio, a farmer, would like to expand his crop production so that it becomes a viable source of income. To do that, he needs a loan of PHP 50,000 to buy seeds and fertilizer.
The income from it will then help him to cope with the needs of his large family and give all of his children a higher education. Prudencio is very grateful to everyone who can help him achieve his dreams with this loan.
