Rodrigo is 35 years old and from Ubay, Bohol. He is married with four children. His eldest is 14 and the youngest is 7. For a year now, Rodrigo has been in the business of selling purified water in his neighborhood. This business provides safe water to drink for the residents. He accepts delivery by order. He finds this to be a good business. He is asking for a loan to pay for water, gasoline and a spare tire for his motorcycle during delivery. His income provides food for his family and pays for his children’s education.
Rodrigo hopes that, in the coming years, he will be able to continually support his children’s schooling until they graduate.
