Rodolfo is 53 years old. He is married and has three grown children. At his age, Rodolfo is proud to share that he can still do some field activities like planting, plowing and spraying. Rodolfo’s wife is a housekeeper and sometimes is also his partner in managing their rice farming business. The couple is changing their ideas to apply in farming to ensure that they have good production.
Rodolfo has been farming for 29 years. He wants to continue operating his farming business while he can manage it. Therefore, Rodolfo is requesting a loan of 42,000 PHP to buy seeds, fertilizers and herbicides that he needs for farming. He looks forward to the success of his efforts in farming.
