Josephine's story

Josephine is a 48-year-old farmer from Quezon, Nueva Ecija. She is happily married to Marilou, a vendor, and blessed with four children who are still pursuing their studies. She has been engaged in the farming industry dealing with rice production for almost 17 years.

She has been a good-paying client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran, Inc. (ASKI) for about one year. She has been granted a loan amounting to 50,000 PHP under the agricultural loan program of ASKI.

Her previous loan gave her the capability to produce good quality rice because of the fertilizer she bought using her loan. The loan she borrowed will be used to buy pesticides and fertilizer for her new crops. She hopes that with the help of ASKI and KIVA, her farming business will expand.
