Zaldy has been involved in farming for almost 15 years. He is 48 years old and married, with two school-going children.

Zaldy patiently manages his corn farming business to earn a living. Though he has, at times, suffered from difficulties in life, he is still grateful because he is able to sustain all of his family's needs. One of his goals is to plant more corn in order to gain higher yields. However, due to his household expenses and his children's school fees, he cannot buy the necessary farm supplies. Zaldy is therefore asking for a loan of PHP 27,000, which would really help him a lot in buying farm supplies and paying for labor to transplant and plow the corn field. Zaldy hopes to make his dream come true, allowing him to send his children to higher levels of education.
