Edgardo
Edgardo devotes most of his time to his agricultural business. He lives with his wife and five children peacefully. His main priority is to ensure proper growth of his hogs and rice crops. But due to the expensive cost of farm inputs, hog feed and vitamins, he decided to ask for additional capital of 20,000 PHP (Philippines pesos). Edgardo prays that he can continue to ensure proper growth of his hogs upon reaching their maturity date, so he can gain better income and save some of it for his security purposes, for when he and his spouse get weak.
