Dominador is 39 years old and married. He likes to spend time with his family during his free time. They live happily in the village of Simanu.
Dominador makes a living through farming, growing a rice crop. He is asking for a loan of PHP 15,000 to buy inputs, such as fertilizer, and to pay for the labor cost spent on farming. He sometimes faces challenges, especially with the farm products' prices in the market, but he is courageous enough in taking the risk in the farming business.
Dominador's dream is to expand his business, to give his children a good education.
