Joey is 26 years old. He lives with his wife and children. He has been working hard in the agricultural business sector for the last four years. This experience has given him the ability and knowledge to cope with unpredictable weather conditions. His principal plants are corn and rice. He sells his crops to bulk grain traders near his place of residence. The earnings he receives from his sales help with his family's expenses.
Joey is requesting a loan to enable him to buy farming supplies, such as animal manure, seeds, fertilizer, etc., that will help him with his planting so he can have better profits and continue helping with the household expenses without any limitation.
