Bienvenido is 24 years old, married, and had one child. To make a living, Bienvenido raises crops, particularly planting and harvesting corn for sale. He has been in this business for almost three years and earns about P8,000 each harvest season, twice in a year. He would like to improve his crop output so he is asking for a loan of P10,000 to buy fertilizers and pesticides used in farming.

Bienvenido would like to keep producing good harvests from the business to pay for his child's education to earn a degree and good employment for the betterment of their lives someday.
