Jimmy has been engaged in rice production for 39 years. He aims to achieve a higher yield with every harvest of his crop. The duration of his experience in rice farming makes his strategy more effective as he applies it to his farming activities.

Jimmy is 55 years of age, is married to a loving wife and they are blessed with four children. His priorities in life are to send his children to school through to their completion of college. He said that education is the only treasure that he can give to his children.

Jimmy works hard, continuing to develop his farming strategy in order to attain his aim. Financial difficulty is the hindrance in attaining his aim. Thus, he is requesting a loan of PHP 50,000 to buy herbicides, pesticides and fertilizers to use on his farm. He hopes that applying these inputs will have a positive result for his rice production business.
