Jhonny's livelihood comes from rice farming. Planting and harvesting rice allows him to gain 15,000 PHP during harvest season twice in a year. Jhonny lives with his wife and three children in Sampaguita. He aims to increase crop production, that is why he would like to borrow a loan of 30,000 PHP to buy rice seeds to grow and fertilizers for sustenance. With enough sustenance from the rice field, Johnny will continuously produce good crops and sell them to traders.
