Robert has been a Christian minister for more than 20 years. He is married with three children. He aims to save more souls and to have enough profit to sustain his family's basic commodities and educate his youngest child.
Robert is engaged in the agricultural business, particularly raising crops and hogs. He has been a grower of rice crops for two years and has dedicated five years to his transportation business. Robert would like to ask for the additional capital of PHP 10,000, which will help him to renew his motorcycle registration and to buy new wheels and motor oil for maintenance of his transportation business. He hopes that his requested loan will be granted in order for him to educate his youngest child and improve their way of living.
