Over many years, our methods of growing food have become ever more mechanized and more complex. At the same time, we’ve lost millions of acres of good soil to pollution, erosion, and an ever growing population.

This program features four individuals on the frontier of this effort.

Suppose you need to pay a medical bill right now, or have an emergency taxi ride or make a mortgage payment as soon as possible. Then what will you do? Will you go to the banks for loan where you may be rejected even after waiting for hour after hour just to apply? There is no surety that banks will give you loan for such a small amount of loan. Besides it may incur so many formalities and documentation, but you may not have enough time. So what to do in this rough period? Payday loan is the best alternative in this situation.
