Rhea's story

Rhea is a 37-year-old industrious farmer from Palayan City, Nueva Ecija. She is happily married to John Lerry, and they are blessed with three children who are still pursuing their studies.

She has been engaged in the farming industry, where she has planted cabbage and sold them once harvested for almost twenty years. Through farming, she has been able to support their daily needs.

Rhea has been a good-paying client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran, Inc. (ASKI) for about one year. Rhea has been granted a loan amounting to PHP 50,000 under the agricultural loan program of ASKI. Her loan will be used to buy fertilizer and other farm imputs for her crops.

Rhea dreams of having a bigger farm. She believes that with the help of ASKI and Kiva lenders, she will have this in the near future.
