It is his first loan cycle with ACB and will use it to purchase fertilizer and to pay workforce for his rice crop.
To grow his business, his strategy is to cultivate a superior breed of rice at lower cost. In the next years, Emile would like to sell his production to a large number of consumers. With the benefits, he plans to give education to his younger brothers and sisters.
