Ariel is 37 years old. He is married and has two school-aged children. He has been involved in the farm business for 20 years. He has one and a half hectares of land, where he grows rice. He sells his harvest to traders and earned about 35,000 PHP from his last crop. The income from it helps him to cope with the needs of his family and give his children a higher education.
