A loan of $925 helped to buy farm supplies for his rice farming business.


Edwin's story

Edwin aims for better yields and higher profits for every crop. He is 49 years old, widowed, and has been blessed with three grown up children. He acts as both a father and mother to his children. In this situation, Edwin's goal is to push him to continue to improve his farming practices to earn a living. Though he experiences hardships and difficulties in maintaining his rice fields, still he gives his best.

One of Edwin's technique in improving his rice production, is by completing the necessary farm inputs for his rice field. "Planting rice crops is not that easy," said Edwin, "because it needs hard labor, dedication, and most of all financial matters."

Edwin would like to borrow PHP 40,000 to buy farm supplies for his rice farming business. He hopes that he can obtain a plentiful harvest and greater profits to improve his living condition and save some for his emergency purposes.
