Henry C. grows rice for a living. He tills 3 3/4 hectares of land that he inherited from his parents. He is also a fisherman. If he is not busy on the farm, he goes out fishing to catch some fish to eat. He is 53 years old and the harvest that he gets from the farm has made it easier for him to feed and clothe his family.

He is asking for a loan of PhP 13,000 ($275) from CEVI. He will use the loan to buy fertilizers and other farm inputs. In this way, he believes he will have a better yield. His harvest will be for his family's use, and the rest will be sold to rice traders in their village.
