Romeo has lived and worked on his farmland for almost 20 years. He is 52 years old, married and a responsible father to his four children. Romeo works in agriculture, particularly in growing corn. He is thankful because his wife helps him in this business and they work well together. According to Romeo, the farming business requires effort, dedication and strength to have a good harvest. Romeo is determined to raise his family's level of living and to improve the quality of the seeds he cultivates in order to get a better price when he sells his crops.

Romeo's income is not enough to buy farm supplies for his business. He would like to ask for financial assistance amounting to PHP 27,000 to buy farm supplies and to pay for labor to transplant his corn field. He hopes that he can get the amount requested to make his dreams come true and to give his children quality education.
