Due to hardship of living, Ricky engages in raising ducks in his village to have eggs for sale. He is now 38 years old and single. He aims to uplift his status of living in order to support his parents, who are now old and weak. He planned to raise more ducks and build a shelter for them but he has inadequate capital. For this reason, he is asking for a loan of PHP 10,000.00 to buy duck feed, netting and a tent for his ducks. Through this loan, he believes that he will improve the business and make it profitable in the future.
