A loan of $350 helped to buy seed and fertilizer for his farm.

Lauro's story

Lauro is 53 years old. He and Jojita started their family 33 years ago. They have six children. They live in the community of San Juan, in the Isabela province. He makes his living through agriculture because he enjoys working in the fields. He learned this work as a child, thanks to his parents' teaching. Lauro has his own plots of land, where he sows corn and rice. Throughout the years, he has had to confront challenges such as plagues, low prices, and lack of labourers.

Lauro is an admirable family man. Because of her job, Jojita had to move to the city, so Lauro takes care of the children. He does all the cooking and cleaning as if it were nothing, on top of working in the fields. With the help of labourers, who he pays by the day for their labour, Lauro is able to speed up his agricultural chores. His sales are considerable in May. During that time of the year, the price of rice is around 11 Pesos per kilo. This is very good for him and his family.

Lauro is requesting a loan of PHP 15,000 to buy seed and fertilizer for his farm business. Lauro dreams to buy transportation services. With this, he will be able to save on transportation for himself and his produce in the future.
