Raul is a farmer living in the mountainous region of Isabela . He is married and has five children. He has been involved in this business for over 15 years. He started farming on a quarter-acre farm and has seen his business grow through the purchase of land. Now he carries out the business on two acres of land.

His crop farming is a profitable business due to the demand for corn and rice in local towns. He is applying for a loan of PHP 20,000 in order to purchase seeds and fertilizers.

Due to the periodic water shortages, Raul hopes to acquire a water pump to irrigate the land. He plans to achieve this by saving the additional profits obtained by this loan.
