Robinson, 50 years old, is married to Rosadilla and has ten children. He lives in the forest region of Isabela. He is asking for a loan amounting PHP 40,000 to buy fertilizer, seeds, and use the excess money to hire a labourer for his farm. Being a father of ten children, he needs to double his efforts in work so that he can provide for their needs, most especially for the children's studies. Robinson's only dreams are that he can see all his children finish their studies and have better futures.
