A loan of $925 helped to purchase fertilizers and pay for weeding costs.

Junel's story

Junel, a married 24-year-old father of one, lives in the village of Camanga in Tukuran, Zamboanga Del Sur, Philippines, where he is a farmer growing rice to earn a living.

Over the past years, he has spent much time planting, weeding and irrigating the area under the heat of the sun and on rainy days. The family's income is derived primarily from rice production, and Junel earns a total revenue of PHP 13,000 a month.

He is now requesting a loan of PHP 40,000 to purchase fertilizers and pay for weeding costs.

Junel became a member of GDMPC in 2011. He hopes to earn large returns from this investment in his rice production. He plans to work on additional farm fields to increase family income, and he hopes for another loan from the cooperative after a full repayment of this loan.
