George is 33 years old, married and has three children. To generate income, he is providing a motorcycle transport service to the people in his village. From this business, he is able to gain PHP 300 each day. He is not contented with his income because the cost of living today is expensive. All his children are attending school too. He is now borrowing a loan of PHP 20,000 to buy tires, gasoline and crude oil used in the transport business. This will maintain the smooth flow of his operation.

With a good income from the business, he will give the best education to his children and someday lead them to income stability.
