Fredy, age 40, grows and sells vegetables to earn a living. He earns approximately PhP 500 each week from this business. He lives with his wife and child in a village in Angadanan, Isabela.

Fredy aims to earn more income in order to better provide for his family's needs, as well as to save for the future of his child. At this time, he has planted more vegetables, expecting to increase his production next season. However, due to inadequate capital, he is asking for a loan in the amount of PhP 12,000, which he will use to buy seeds and fertilizers to sustain his vegetable production.

He is confident that the loan funds will help him increase his yield.
