Edito is 47 years old and lives in Annafatan with his wife and nine children. Seven of whom are studying while the other two are too young to attend school. Edito is a farmer growing rice and corn to sell. He had been in the business over 10 years now and he still aims for the improvement of his production because cost of living now is expensive especially as he educates his children.
He is now asking for a loan of P 15,000 to buy crude oil, fertilizers and insecticides used in farming. This will help maintain healthy crops to harvest.
Edito is hoping for an abundant harvest to invest in a hog raising business. He hopes to educate all his children.
