“I am the provider for all of my family's needs. I want to build a good future for them and let them live a happier life,” says Romulo S., a 46-year-old father from Trento, Agusan Del Sur. His wife is a dressmaker and has always been supportive of him in his decision to be the head of the family.

With 12 years of experience as a craftsman, Romulo decided to start his own business. He shapes metals and manufactures tools used in gardening like bolos, shovels, etc. He needs a loan of $125 to purchase materials for molding metals.
