Melecio's story

Melecio is 52 years old, from the community of Baybay in the province of Leyte. He is married with one child still living with him and his wife. Melecio runs a small farm where he grows bitter gourds, tomatoes, spring onions and peanuts. He also raise goats for additional income. The recent typhoon Yolanda has ravaged his livelihood and has posed a challenge to his family’s daily living. He is asking for a loan of 30,000 PHP to rebuild his barn for the goats, buy seeds and to cultivate his farm again.

His income will be for his family’s needs like food and home repair.
