Josue's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy fertilizer, herbicides and insecticides for his rice farm.

Josue's story

Josue is 56 years of age, married and blessed with four children. He is a proud man who lives in Aguinaldo Cordon in the Philippines.

Josue has been a rice farmer for 27 years now. His wife is his partner in cultivating their farmland. As the couple would like to increase the productivity of their land, Josue has applied for a 15,000 PHP loan through Kiva's field partner ASKI to apply toward improving it with fertilizer and the use of herbicides and insecticides.

Josue knows that continuous access to ASKI’s financial services to lenders like himself will enable him to continue to improve his rice crops throughout the year.
