Rolly is 31 years old, an elementary school graduate who has no opportunity to finish his education due to poor living conditions.
In spite of this, he still has the courage to develop his own family. As of now, he is married to Mila and is living through her farming. He is working hard for this source of income because he is preparing for future children. He wants to exceed current profits for his children. For this reason, he is asking for a loan amount of 20,000 PHP to buy seeds to plant, fertilizers and pesticides. He hopes that he can yield and earn a higher income than he is used to for his children's future. He also hopes to save money for his continuing business.
