Robin is a farmer living with his children and spouse at Solana. He plant and harvest rice to sell to traders at their village. He's been in business for over 10 years.
He used his profits to pay for meals and education expenses. He usually earns about P20,000 each harvest season (twice a year). Robin aims to increase his income and that is why he is asking for a loan of P45,000 to buy rice seeds to grow, fertilizers and insecticides. This will help ensure healthy growth and nutrition of his crops.
Robin would like to keep producing abundant harvests that will lead to the improvement of his family's living conditions. He wants to become a successful entrepreneur someday.
