Restituto is a 33-year-old married man from the town of San Miguel. He is married with three children ages 1, 3 and 4. His wife works as an auditor. He supports his family by driving a habal-habal (a motorcycle intended to carry passengers to different destinations in remote places) and also farming rice.
He is asking for a loan to buy fertilizer and pesticides for his crops and a spare tire for his motorcycle. A loan will be a great help for his business. His income will be for his children’s healthy diet. He hopes to send them to school someday and see them be successful.
