A loan helped to purchase organic fertilizer and seed for organic rice farming.

Vimol's story

Vimol is a 45-year-old organic rice farming from Thailand. He started practicing organic rice farming 14 years ago with the belief that it would lead him to sustainable happiness and wealth. So far, his farmland has been filled with various kinds of small animals, most of which benefit from the quality of his soil and the clean, natural environment around his land.

He is the father of two children, both of whom are studying at school. In general, he grows rice once a year on his organic farmland, which takes four to six months after planting for the rice to be ready for a harvest. He makes his living by selling his rice harvest for income. However, the area where his farm is located lacks effective irrigation, causing difficulties for him as an organic rice farmer. Unfortunately, his 10-acre farmland was worsened by drought earlier this year. As a result, he is now in need of capital to solve his current problems.

Vimol is seeking a loan to purchase organic fertilizer and seed for organic rice farming in this coming season. He wants to use more organic fertilizer to improve the quality of soil on his farmland, which could generate a 10 percent higher yield or more. He also hopes that organic rice farming will be a profitable option in the future for anyone interested in working in a natural environment, breathing only fresh and clean air.
