Matagal ko na pong hinahangad mapabilang sa scholarship program ng tesda sa ilalim ng AGRE. Sana po ay payagan ninyo akong mapabilang sa susunod na batch sa agri training upang makamtan ko na ang matagal ko ng hinahangad na tamang kaalaman sa agricultura.
Ayon po sa inyong qualification requirements, dapat po hindi nakatuntong ng college. Ako po ay college graduate at senior citizen na. Ngunit sa kabila nito, ako po ay may masidhing kagustuhang matuto sa ilalim ng Agrea sa tulong ng Tesda. Ang regular training po na may kabayaran ay di ko kakayanin sa kabila ng aking regular sss pension na sya kong pinagkukunan ng aking araw araw na pangangailangan.
Sana po ay mapagbigyan ang aking apila na mapabilang sa nasabing programa, at maghihintay sa inyong tugon.
Maraming salamat po at more power.

Magandang araw,

Maraming salamat sa napakagandang opportunidad na inyong inihandog, ang aking katanungan lamang ay maari po bang makapasok o eligible ang mga kapatid nming mga Dumagat buhat sa Bulacan. Ako po ay isang mission climbet at isa po ang mga kapatid naming dumagat ang aming tinutulong. Di po sila lahat nakapag aral o kaya namn nakatungtong sa sekondarya, kaya yun lang po ang nakikita kong limitasyon sa programang ito. May maliit po kami na programang livelihood at farming kaya napakagandang opurtunidad po ito na ma equip sila at magkaroon ng karagdagan kaalaman sa organic farming. Maraming salamat po umaasa po akong matutulungan nyo po kami
