A loan of $650 helped to improve his greenhouse's electrical system and expand his farming..


Hidayat's story

Hidayat is fifty-six years old, married and has a son. For the past ten years, he's made a living as a farmer and is helped by his son in running the business. Hidayat sells milk, meat, cucumbers and tomatoes. Additionally, his son helps out by working as a repairman and bringing home part of his salary.

Hidayat has a very weak heating system in his greenhouse and he's asking for a loan in order to fix this problem. If he could supply his greenhouse with constant electricity, the temperature problem would be solved and he would be able to increase his farming.
