Patricio is 46 years old, married, and has two school-aged children. He is a farmer who is raising his family in a rural community. He cultivates their farmland by planting vegetables, fruits, and root crops for selling. He plans to expand his vegetable production to ensure a higher production. Due to inadequate capital, he is asking for an additional loan of PHP 10,000 to buy the needed seeds, fertilizer, and herbicides to sustain his crop production. He believes that with the financial assistance of KIVA lenders through ASKI, it will enable him to improve his farming business. He hopes that he will have a good harvest and profit for his family.
