Santos grows rice crops in the village where he lives. The income generated from his farming business has helped his family in terms of buying their food and milk for his two children and other basic necessities.

Santos started his farming business at the age of 16. He is thankful, because his wife is helping him generate income through her homed-based store. Santos hopes to have a stable income so that he can provide for all of their needs, most especially for his two kids.

Santos would like to apply for a loan amount of PHP 15,000 to buy farm supplies for his agricultural business. He knows that his farming business will continue to grow, because of the financial support given to him by ASKI and Kiva lenders.
