Dionicio's story

Dionicio is 55 years old and married with three children. He is a loving and hardworking person. Dionicio has grown rice for the past 25 years. At first, he found it difficult to work on the land, because it requires a lot of patience, a strong body, and, of course financial resources. But as he began to farm, he gradually got used to the work and added a plot of land to grow rice. Dionicio is requesting a 50,000 PHP loan to buy seed, fertilizer, and tractor fuel to increase his crop production. He wants to provide a better life for his children and be able to feed them well. He continues to move forward to achieve his dream of having a comfortable life. Dionicio hopes that his loan will result in a more a more productive farm and that he will be able to continue his business and improve his lifestyle.
