Edmundo M. is the father of five children. He is 62 years old and still plowing with the carabao, a farm animal typically used by Filipinos to plow fields. Currently, he owns a 1-hectare farm that he bought from his little savings when he was younger.

He needs a loan to support the needs in his rice field. A loan of Php 14,000 will help him buy sacks of rice seeds and pay the laborers who helped prepare the land for planting.

He said this is his fifth loan from CEVI. He has stayed this long in the program because he likes the services and the staff is very friendly as well.
