Leo's story

Leo is a 34-year-old farmer from Cuyapo, Nueva Ecija. He is single and blessed living with his family. For about 5 years, he has been engaged in piggery business. They sell pigs for special occasions or they deliver it to a slaughter house. He has been a reliable client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran (ASKI), Inc. for about 1 year. Leo has been granted a loan amounting to PHP 50,000.00 under the agricultural loan program of ASKI. His loan will be used to buy feeds and vitamins for his pigs. His dream is to expand his piggery business and for his children to finish their studies. He hopes that with the help of ASKI and KIVA Funders, his piggery will expand.
