Arlan didn't finish his college studies due to the early death of his step-father. He is indeed thankful to his step-father because without him, he wouldn't have been able to enter school. Arlan didn't lose his hopes of attaining his goal in life instead, it pushes him to strive hard to succeed.
Arlan both raises corn crops and livestock. Nowadays, he raised four animals which he fattened. Currently, his main priority is to increase the income he generates in order to support his children's education and have a viable source of income.
To make all these things possible, he is requesting a loan of PHP 45,000 which will allow him to buy livestock feed and to maintain his corn field. Arlan hopes for continuous financial support of the lenders to his business.
