Mercedes's story

Mercedes is a 44-year-old farmer from Laur, Nueva Ecija. She is happily married to Mr. Joey and blessed with three children who are still pursuing their studies.

She has been engaged in the farming industry for almost 11 years; she plants rice grains and sells the rice after they harvest it. They deliver it to the rice dealers around their town. She has been a good paying client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran (ASKI), Inc. for about 8 years.

She has been granted a loan of 60,000 PHP under the agricultural loan program of ASKI. Her loan will be used to buy different vegetable seeds to plant and fertilizer to facilitate the growth of the crops. She believes that with the help of ASKI she will have a wide farmland.
