When times were tough for Rutty after failing to find a job because of his low level of education, he settled for agriculture, but does not regret the choice he made. He has since become one of the major suppliers of plantain, a major delicacy in the nearby trading center. He also sells to people that transport the plantain to other towns. He now wants a loan to buy mulch and organic manure to put in his plantain plantation. With the manure, his yields will be higher and his plantains will be bigger in size, therefore increasing his sale price and profits. He is a very hardworking and committed man. In the photo Rutty is in his banana (plantain) plantation.
