A loan of $750 helped to improve her farming business by purchasing fertilizers and seeds and to expand her hog-raising business.


Wilma's story

The word "honor" best describes Mrs. Wilma. She is married to Arturo, and together they care for their family farm. They have two children and live in a community in the Rizal province of Isabela. Agriculture is the main source of income for the local residents.



Wilma and her husband grow different crops, including rice, corn and other vegetables. In a typical week, they are able to earn at least 1,500 PHP by selling vegetables, which they harvest on their own. She explains that it takes them approximately three to five months to harvest their crops and to then sell the crops for a profit.



To maintain and improve their farming business and to avoid high-interest debt from other lenders, Wilma has asked for a loan in the amount of 30,000 PHP from Kiva so she can finance their farming needs (e.g., by buying fertilizers and seeds). Wilma is also planning to use some of the loan proceeds to expand their hog-raising business. She expects to manage the hogs while her husband is working on the farm.
