"You will never succeed unless you try your best," says Danilo, a responsible father who has four adult-age children. He has owned and managed a 1.5 hectare rice field for almost 38 years, earning a profit of 30,000 PHP per crop. As the fruit of his patience and hard work, all of his children have already graduated, and they are now employed.

Now he is always busy, for he has been chosen as the captain of his barangay. Despite this, Danilo wants to continue managing his rice field to earn money and save for his future. Therefore, he wants to ask for a loan of 40,000 PHP to buy fertilizer and pesticides and for labor to sustain his rice production. He is hoping that he will increase his production and income to be used for food and clothing and to save for future emergencies.

Danilo believes that he will be successful in carrying out all his plans, for he has strong faith and determination.
