Fortunato's story

Fortunato is a 37-year-old piggery owner from Jaen, Nueva Ecija. He is happily married to Fredilyn, a domestic helper, and they are blessed with three children, who are still pursuing their studies.

To make a living, he has been engaged in a piggery business for almost 11 years. He has been a good-paying client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran, Inc. (ASKI) for about 4 years.

Fortunanto has been granted a loan amounting to PHP 50,000 under the agricultural loan program of ASKI. His loan will be used to buy feed for his pigs so they will grow faster.

He believes that with the help of ASKI, he will achieve his dreams for his family.
