Primitivo is a proud farmer. He plants and harvests corn to sell. Through having this business, he is able to sustain his family’s needs. Currently, he is sending his three children to school.
Primitivo hopes to continue sustaining his crops with necessary farm inputs. However, due to insufficient funds, he is asking for a loan of PHP 35,000 to buy fertilizers, insecticides and pesticides to use in farming. He will keep trying his best to become a successful farmer for the welfare of his family's future.
