Gilbert wants to exceed his profit for his four children. For this reason, he is now asking for a loan amount of PHP 20,000 for additional working capital in his farming business. It would be used to buy seeds to plant, fertilizers, and pesticides. He hopes that his crops will not be destroyed by any devastating insect or typhoon so that he can easily attain his aspiration. His wish is that the income can be used for his family's future as well as saved for continuing his business.
