Manuel lives peacefully with his loving wife and two children. He has devoted six years of sacrifices and patience to his rice field. Having devoted this long period of time, he is able to increase his yields every crop season.

Manuel decided to continue developing his rice crop production, so he is asking for a loan of PHP 20,000 to allow him to buy the necessary fertilizer and insecticide to ensure the good growth of his rice crops. In this way, he will be able to obtain a greater income for his family's needs and the education of his two children. Manuel believes that his goal in life will someday be realized, because he has been doing his best in his rice farming business.
