Crisologo wants to have a better income to raise his children, but he tells us that he needs to buy working materials such as metal plates, iron, electrodes, etc. That's why, the loan that will be used to buy these materials is greatly needed so that he can perform the work and thus is able to meet the employment contract he has. From this he will be able to increase the income which he lacks.

Crisologo tells us that he wants to improve working conditions that he has and because of that the next loan that he requests will be used to improve the conditions in his shop.
