In addition to farming, Wilson engages in a retailing business selling drinks, breads and spices. He has been in the business for eight years. Wilson shares that his profits from the business almost always went for his children's education. He also shares that at present their living conditions don’t have any improvement because he always prioritizes his three children's needs in school in pursuing their education.
At all times, Wilson looks for the improvement of his business. His goal is to increase his earnings to continue supporting his three children's needs in pursuing their education. Wilson wishes for a loan of PHP 40,000 to buy beverages, canned goods, eggs and soap. In the future, his children will finish their education and see his effort in carrying his family.
