Dennis is 33 years old and married with only one child. He and his wife work together to obtain their goal in life.
Dennis manages his livestock and farming business. He is thankful because even though he only finished elementary school, he is able to care for his hogs well and improve production of his corn crop. Dennis aims to continue growing his business so, he is asking for a loan of 27,000 PHP, which he will use to buy feed and pay for maintenance of his corn farming business. He knows that through the additional capital he has requested, he could provide his family a more comfortable lifestyle and send his only child on to a higher level of education.
