Rogelio and his family live in the mountainous area of Isabela. His main source of income is rice farming, and he has been doing that for almost six years now. According to Rogelio, his yield in this activity is of great help because some of the yield serves as the daily food intake of his family, while he sells some to support their other expenditures. At present, Rogelio needs additional capital for his farming activities. Thus, he is requesting a loan amounting to 25,000 PHP. He said that he will use the loan to buy fertilizer and seeds for his farming business.
