Melchor's story

Melchor says growing plants is just like caring for a child. He is 47 years old and operates his 1.2-hectares of rice fields. In 22 years of developing his farm plot, Melchor is able to improve his living conditions and educate his two children. Melchor's wife is an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW).

Melchor youngest child is a college student on whom he spent his gained profit. His main goal now is to increase his profit so he could let his youngest child finish his degree and have a stable source of income. Melchor plans to purchase necessary farm supplies to ensure proper growth of his rice crops and also to pay hired laborers who will cultivate his farm land. He is requesting additional working capital through a loan of PHP 40,000. He believes that his farm could be one of the best among the rice fields of San Sebastian someday because he applies good agricultural practices he acquired from training and workshops he has attended.
