Hing is 58 years old and a retired policeman who always helps his wife manage their farm and take care of the family that is comprised of six children. Five of them are already married and have independent lives. Hing is thankful to his wife who has helped him in every situation to better their family economically since the beginning. That is why he is very supportive and a hardworking father for the household.
Now Hing is asking for a loan from Kiva lenders to invest in their farming business effectively. Through using the loan, he will be able to purchase seeds, fertilizers, pesticides and to pay for the operating costs in farming. Hopefully, he will have a fruitful harvest in the coming season. In the future, he wishes to own extra lots of farmland and increase his production.
