Gregorio's income comes from selling crops. He is a farmer planting and harvesting rice to sell. He had been in the business for over ten years now and earns about P15,000 each harvest season (twice a year). Gregorio is 49 years-old and married and had four children. Gregorio would like to improve his crop output but has had insufficient funds. Therefore, he is asking for a loan of P30,000 in order to buy farm materials (insecticides, pesticides and fertilizers) to use in farming.

Gregorio would like to keep improving his farming business in order to provide a good education and better living for his family.
