Marilou's story

Marilou is a 65-year-old farmer from Cabanatuan City, Nueva Ecija. She is happily married to Felix, and they are blessed with two children.

Marilou has been engaged in farming for almost 35 years. She plants rice grains and sells the rice once harvested. She delivers the rice using a motorcycle to the rice dealers around their town.

Marilou has been a good client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran, Inc. (ASKI) for about 20 years. And she has been granted a loan amounting to 50,000 PHP under the agricultural loan program of ASKI. Her loan proceeds will be used to buy fertilizer and pesticides for the growth of her crops. She believes that, with the help of ASKI, her farmland will expand.
