Loreto is managing his rice farm in the village of Amulungan, Rizal Santiago City. He is happily married to Milarnie R. and they have six children: two of them are already married and have their own families and four of them are still single: Rowena, 22, is a high school graduate; Loreto Jr.,19, completed only grade-IV due to lack of funds; Rhea, 14, is a 1st year high school student and Reina Mae, 8, is a grade-I pupil. The couple works hard to support the schooling of their children.

Rice farming is the main source of income of Loreto and his family. So, he is doing all his best to have high yields. He would like to buy all the farm supplies needed in his farming but his capital is not sufficient and he is requesting additional capital amounting PHP30,000 that will be used in buying fertilizer, pesticides and other supplies needed to have high yields. Through his loan he would be able to purchase all those things so he is praying that this amount will be provided.
