Dickson is 23 years old and married, but has no children yet. He and his wife aim to become successful and financially stable in order to have a better life. Since farming is the main source of their income, Dickson plans to expand his rice farm to ensure a high production and yield. With that goal, Dickson wants to ask for a loan of 20,000 PHP (Philippines pesos) from Kiva lenders. He will use the loan to buy fertilizers and pesticides needed in rice farming. Through patience and hard work, he believes that he will be going to improve his farming business and increase his production this coming harvest season.
