A loan of $1,200 helped to buy rice seeds and fertilizers.

Franklin's story

Franklin is a forty-one-year-old married father of four children. Franklin manages a two-hectare rice field in his village. He wants to take a loan of PHP 50,000 to buy rice seeds and fertilizers to put on his crops so he will have a better yield. The loan will be a big help for him in obtaining the farm inputs needed in his farm. Franklin hopes to get a better yield from this crop and gain higher income.

In the future, Franklin wants to see his children finish their education thanks to the profits he will make from farming. He hopes to develop his expertise in farming and maintain the business while managing it.
