A loan of $900 helped to purchase farm supplies such as fertilizer and insecticides and for land preparation of rice farm.

Herminio's story

As farmers, Herminio and Grace make sure that their farm is well maintained. The couple carefully plans their farming strategies to take advantage of their one hectare rice field to produce plentiful yields next season. Herminio hopes that his farming business will further grow so he can educate his two children and give them a better way of living.

Herminio would like to take out another loan amounting to PHP37,000. He will use this amount in purchasing farm supplies, such as fertilizer and insecticides, and to pay for land preparation of his farm plot. He believes that this loan will help him in achieving his goal in life.
