Rolly is a hardworking father and husband to Mary Ann. They live in the local community of Namnama Alfonso Lista.
His family's main source of income comes primarily from his farming business. He manages four hectares of corn and half a hectare of rice field. He is glad because his profits were used to cover all their household expenditures, and some amount serves as their savings for emergency purposes.
Rolly raises pigs. He would like to make them healthy and free from any diseases, so he can sell them for greater income. To fulfill his goal, he requests a loan of PHP 25,000 allowing him to buy the necessary vitamins, vaccines, and stock hog feed.
He knows that through this loan, he can obtain higher income that will serve to his family daily commodities and education of his only child.
