A loan of $875 helped to be use in buying farm inputs such as fertilizer and to pay for labor costs of applying the fertilizer to his rice fields.

Mario's story

Farming is the primary source of income for Mario's family. He has been a rice grower for 21 years. Mario owns four hectares of rice fields. Aside from farming, he also helps his wife raise hogs as an additional source of income.

Mario is married with five children. Currently, two of his children go to school, two are Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW), and one is married. Any profits from Mario's farming business goes to basic commodities, allowances for his two schoolchildren and some is used for maintenance of his livestock business. Mario's main priority is to increase the yield he obtains all throughout the crop season but he struggles with a shortage of funds. For this reason, he has requested a loan of PHP 35,0000 so that he can buy farm inputs such as fertilizer and pay for labor costs.
