A loan of $525 helped to buy six bags of UREA (fertilizer) and pesticides to use in farming.


Alex's story

Alex is a small farmer living at Nabbotuan with his wife and four grown-up children. One is still pursuing a college degree. From the farming business, he acquires about PHP 15,000 during harvest season twice a year.

He is now asking for a loan of PHP 22,000 to maintain good crop growth. He will buy six bags of UREA (fertilizer) and pesticides to use in farming.

Alex hopes to achieve a plentiful harvest every harvest season to save funds to use in times of emergencies, especially because he and his wife are getting weak and old.
