Norberto D., 57-years old, has been farming since 1960. Currently, he is tilling a one and 3/4 hectare rice field which is the bread and butter of his family. He hopes to make his farm productive and that his children will finish their studies.

Hoping for a better harvest, he would like a loan of Php 15,000 from Kiva partner Community Economic Ventures Inc. He plans to buy fertilizers and chemicals to ensure the healthy growth of his rice plants. The loan will hopefully not just give an abundant harvest but also a bigger family income.
