Ricardo's story

Ricardo is from San Jose, Aurora, Zamboanga Del Sur. He is 60 years old. Ricardo is married and has five children. He has a farm where he grows a variety of plants. To purchase fertilizer, such as manure, he borrowed an amount of 35,000 from GDMPC micro-credit (which he joined in 2010). Ricardo hopes to invest more in this business in order to generate more income for better living conditions in the future.
