Macario and his wife enjoy performing farm activities. This couple is peacefully living with their four children.

Macario is industrious and has patience in everything he does. He really appreciates his family because each one of them have their own assigned work to perform within their house. So, he has a great time cultivating his farm land. It's been ten years of sacrifices he has devoted to this field of business.

Macario would like to increase his profits to be able to obtain a better standard of living but his capital is not sufficient to pay for the labor involved in land preparation, transplanting and buying seeds to grow. In this situation, he is asking for a loan of PHP 40,000. He hopes have continuous access to financial support to be able to succeed.
