Jose, who is 27 years old, is married with two children. With his young age as a husband and father, he needs to work hard to sustain the needs of his family, especially in saving enough for the education of his children. He wants the best for his children because, for him, education is the only priceless gift he can give them.
Because of financial difficulty, he is asking for a loan amounting to PHP 15,000. He will use it to buy sacks of fertilizer and seeds for his farming business's maintenance and growth.
Somehow, Jose also dreams of building a concrete house for his family, thus really doing the best in farming to improve his yield.
