Emmanuel's story

Emmanuel, 55 years old, is the father of four children, two of whom go to school. The Post-Harvest Bridge Loan, a new loan product for UOB, is a top up loan for farmers who have received the Agric Production financing and are waiting for their harvest to be bought by buyers. UOB’s farmer clients are benefiting from the production financing, which is significantly boosting their yield or production. During the post-harvest process, they are experiencing more poverty as they have to wait for the buyer 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.
