The featured borrower, Suyitno, is a 46-year-old corn farmer who lives in Lampung, Indonesia. He is married and has four children. He also has other small businesses that he manages like a kiosk and selling cattle.
He is asking for a loan through Vasham to support his corn farm, allowing him to purchase needed seeds and fertilizers that will boost his crop’s yield for the upcoming season. He has farmed with Vasham since 2016. Before that, he found it difficult to find someone that would allow him to borrow money for a loan.
Suyitno has been a farmer for two years. In the future he hopes to expand his land.
