A loan of $350 helped buy seeds, fertilizers, pesticides and pay labor cost.

Mariano's story

Mariano said, "Being a farmer is a challenging profession, it requires more patience and sacrifices to have a plentiful harvest".

Mariano has been a farmer for more than 30 years, planting and harvesting rice for sale. At his age of 51, he manages and supports his family and educates his only child. Sometimes they experience financial difficulty, especially when they have low production of rice, but through hard work they are able look for other sources of income in order to meet their needs.

Due to the high cost of commodities, Mariano wants to ask for a loan of PHP 15,000 to buy seeds, fertilizers, pesticides and pay for labor cost required in planting rice. He mentioned that he will use this loan in the improvement of his rice farming business to increase his yield and income for this coming harvest season.
