"Try and try until you succeed" is the favorite motto of Warlito. Always believing that trying so hard is not a bad idea but a measurement of a successful person after overcoming all his failures but never surrendering to try again and again.

Warlito is 49 years old. He is married with three children. One of his biggest dream is to become one of the successful farmers in the Philippines. His wife and children serve as inspiration in the business.

He is requesting a loan to buy fertilizers and seeds to grow in his rice farm. He will also use some part of the loan to pay for labor fees for those working for him in the field. He further said that this loan will be of big help for him to stop borrowing from traders with high loan interest of five to ten percent each month.
