Emilyn's story

Emilyn is a 41-year-old farmer from Guimba, Nueva Ecija. She is happily married to Melchor, a farmer, and blessed with two children who are still pursuing their studies.

She has been engaged in the farming industry, where she has planted and cultivated rice grains for almost 21 years. She has been a good paying client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran (ASKI), Inc. for about three years.

She has been granted a loan amounting to 50,000 PHP under the agricultural loan program of ASKI. Her loan will be used to buy fertilizer and for the land preparation of their crops.

She hopes that with the help of ASKI, her farmland will expand.
