Rodolfo engages in rice crop production to earn a living and meet his family's needs. He is 49 years old, is married and has five children. He expects to earn and save more income from his business to offer a bright future to his children.
To attain his dream, he plans to maximize his farming business. This leads him to request a loan of 20,000 PHP to purchase rice seeds, fertilizers and insecticides used in farming. In the future, he hopes to acquire more revenue from his rice production in order to feel financially secure.
