Guillermo
Guillermo is a 42-year-old father who is raising his family in a rural community. He aimed to improve their living conditions in order to educate his two children and give them a better life. He and his wife help each other in cultivating their farm land by planting rice and some vegetables. In addition to their agricultural work, he runs a small variety store in their community to generate additional income.

Guillermo planned to acquire more commodities to sell but he does not have enough capital. For this reason, he is asking for a loan of PHP 30,000 to buy more stock of snack foods, canned goods, beverages, seasonings, soaps, eggs, noodles and soft drinks to sell. He is hoping that this financial assistance will enable them to improve the business.
