Jefferson's goal in life is to provide a progressive living for his family. He is 34 years old and has been cultivating rice as a source of his income for nearly 15 years. He goes to the field every day to ensure he cultivates good crops. Farming is quite difficult as a source of income, but Jefferson is a patient man who sacrifices a lot for his family.
Jefferson wants to improve his income so he can pay for the tuition fees and allowances for his two children. Jefferson aims to strengthen his business so he is asking for a loan of PHP 25,000 to buy fertilizers and insecticides used in farming.
In the future, Jefferson would like to keep generating abundant harvests in his rice field and improve his living conditions.
