Jeffrey is an industrious man and a loving father to his child. He is 22 years old and a farmer, planting and harvesting corn to sell. He has been in the business for two years now and earns just enough income to sustain his family's needs and to have revolving capital in the business.
He hopes to increase his crop production, and for that goal he is asking for P40,000 to buy farm supplies (urea, pesticides and insecticides) to use in farming. In the future, Jeffrey hopes to become a successful corn grower and attain a progressive life for his family, especially for the welfare of his child.
