Rolly is a hardworking father and husband. He is from the village of Namilangan Alfonso Lista. According to him, the primary source of income of the families from the village comes from farming of corn crops. At this time, he manages both his corn farm and livestock business.
Rolly is married with seven children. Four of his children are studying, while the other three are already married. He is thankful because his wife is supportive in the growth of their farm and livestock business. At this time, Rolly is busy preparing his corn field, so his wife will temporarily replace her husband's role in taking care of his hogs to maintain their proper growth, though he is busy cultivating his farm land.
Rolly would like to ask for a loan of PHP 27,000, allowing him to buy stocks of hog feed and necessary vitamins needed in the proper growth of his hogs. He hopes to obtain this loan amount so he can make his hogs healthier in reaching their optimum growth. In this way, he can deal his hogs for a higher price, which will enable him to send his children to a higher level of education and give his family a comfortable living condition.
