Reynaldo's story

Reynaldo lives peacefully with his family in their village. He has three school-aged children. Reynaldo is proud of being a farmer. He plants rice in the Philippines. He has been in this business for almost 26 years.

Reynaldo’s business serves him as a source of income. His profit from the business mostly goes for his children's fees in school and household expenses. Reynaldo has difficulties in providing farm inputs needed in rice farming because his priority is his children's education.

Renaldo is asking for a loan of P27,000 to buy rice seed, fertilizers, herbicides and insecticides for plant care. He wishes to get a better yield and gain higher income to supplement his family's needs.
