Benjamin's family lives in the village of Carmencita where farming is the primary source of income for most families. He is very energetic in doing his daily farming chores. His farm size now is sort of small, so he is working hard to be able to expand it in the future for his family.
He is requesting the amount of PHP 15,000 to buy sacks of fertilizers and seeds for his farming business. Benjamin will be greatly touched and happy if lenders will support him financially. He promises to be more responsible in his business endeavors, and punctual in his loan repayments.
