Gerald's story

Gerald is 33 years old. He is married and has seven children. This is a new loan product for UOB. The Post-Harvest Bridge Loan is a top-up loan for farmers who have received Agricultural Production financing. These farmers are waiting for their maize harvest to be bought by buyers. UOB’s farmer clients are benefiting from the production financing, which is significantly improving their yield or production. During the post-harvest processes, they are suffering financially as they wait for the buyers to pay them. This Kiva loan will play a big role as a bridge for solving their primary day-to-day needs during this period.
