A loan of $275 helped to purchase fertilizer and one water buffalo for use in farming rice.


Teresa's story

Teresa V. is a 57-year-old mother of eleven who lives in San Jose, the capital of beautiful Antique Province. Her youngest child is still in primary school. Another child is in high school and one is attending college. The rest of her children are finished with school. She and her husband farm rice. Teresa plans to use the money from this loan to buy fertilizer for her rice crop and to purchase a water buffalo (called "caribou" in the Philippines) to use as a work animal in the fields. Teresa would like to be able to buy more farmland someday and hopes to be able to provide for the rest of her children's education.
