A loan of $675 helped to buy fertilizer and pesticides and pay the labor costs for transplanting rice seedlings.


William's story

Because of life's difficulties, William works hard to provide for the needs of his family. He has a farming business and cultivates rice. At the age of 56, he is off to the field at dawn, doing different farming activities just to make sure that his rice plants will grow healthy and he will be able to harvest more rice. Wanting to generate more income, William decided to avail a loan from Kiva lenders amounting to 28,000 Philippine pesos. If this loan is granted, he intends to buy fertilizer and pesticides and pay the labor costs for transplanting rice seedlings. With this financial assistance, he believes that he will improve his farming business and he is hoping that he will increase his yield this coming harvest season.
