Jodel lives in Simanu. He is married and has two children. For the past eight years he has been farming, and his family relies on this for a living. He is asking to borrow a loan in order to finance his farming needs with the supply of fertilizers and seeds to grow.

Any extra income that he makes from farm labor work will go towards his family's daily necessities and a little savings. Jodel dreams to start a separate business of landscaping, but he has difficulties in finding customers so he set this aside for the meantime and focuses on farming.
