Their land was pawned by his parents when they had very important needs many years ago.
Henry joined GDMPC this year and availed a loan to redeem (buy back) his farm. He is happy that this time their farm is fully in their hands, and was thankful to GDMPC for making this happen.
More information about this loan
This loan is part of GDMPC's new redemption loan program. During difficult times, poorer clients in rural areas often sell farming lots. This decreases their capacity to generate income, and they are often unable to reclaim the land. GDMPC's program enables these clients to buy back their lots and cultivate them again. In addition, the institution provides working capital loans so clients can invest in seeds and fertilizers to increase crop yields.
