Felisicimo's story

Felisicimo, 38, is a hardworking man who lives in Manalo. He has a rice farming business and fattens hogs as sources of income. Aside from managing these businesses, he also serves his community as a Barangay Councilor (the smallest unit of the community). He enjoys his business though the income from the business is not stable.

He is now asking for a loan of 10,000 Philippines pesos to buy seeds, fertilizers and insecticides. He would like to make his crops more productive and increase his earnings.

In the future, Felisicimo would like to make the family financially stable.
