Stevenson owns and has managed his rice fields for almost 18 years. He is 34 years old, married and has been blessed with two children who are studying.

Stevenson devotes himself to his agricultural business since it is the family's main source of income. He is thankful because his wife is supportive in their business. Stevenson is in charge of taking care of his rice fields while his wife is busy with her hog raising business. The couple works hard to provide for living. According to him, the family's income goes to the allowances, daily needs and some is used to pay for their electricity bills. So for this reason, Stevenson would like to ask for financial assistance amounting to 40,000 PHP which will be used to buy farm supplies and pay for the labor cost of transplanting and sowing crops in his rice fields. This amount would really help him in attaining his goal which to educate his children and improve their living conditions.
