Dindo is a responsible father and a farmer, living at Estefania with his wife and children. He is raising crops, particularly planting and harvesting corn to sell. He usually gains about PHP 12,000 during each harvest season (twice a year). Aside from managing his cornfield, Dindo also serves his fellows as an active counselor in their village.
Now, Dindo hopes to achieve more crop production. That is why he is asking for a loan of PHP 40,000 to invest in buying fertilizers and insecticides for use in farming. Dindo would like to keep making the business profitable and save funds for education expenses.
