Eduardo U. owns a rice farm. He learned to grow rice from his parents. Now that he has his own family, he works his best to increase his yield to support the needs of his child well. He is 48 years old and has only 1 child. He wants to send his child to school. His harvest is what he depends on for the future of his family. Almost all of his harvest is saved for family consumption, while the remainders are sold to some rice traders in their village.

He is requesting a loan from CEVI (Kiva's Field Partner) for Php 12, 000. He will use the loan to buy the necessary fertilizers, herbicides and other chemicals for his farm. His loan will truly give Eduardo better harvest. In this way, he will have more to give to his family.
