Christopher
Christopher, 40, lives with his family in the village of Carikrikan, where he conducts the family's farming activities. He grows crops such as rice on the family-owned 2-hectare plot of land.



Christopher is now requesting a loan of PHP 40,000 to purchase fertilizer for his farm. He plans to save some of his income to purchase furniture for the house, as the family currently has very little.
