Ronald is married to Joana. He and his family live happily in a village and have a plan to raise their standard of living. Farming is one of their major sources of income; they plant and harvest rice for sale. They have been in this business for more than eleven years and usually earn a profit of 35,000 PHP in each harvest season.

At this time, Ronald is asking for a loan of 35,000 PHP to buy rice seeds, fertilizers, and pesticides and to pay for the labor needed for rice-planting. Ronald believes that this loan will be an enormous help to the family's hopes of increasing their yield.
