Laura's story

Laura is an outstanding resident of Jaen, Nueva Ecija. She is 57 years old, happily married to Nicanor, and blessed with three children who are pursuing their studies.

To make a living, Laura has been engaged in managing a piggery business for almost nine years. She has been a good-paying client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran (ASKI) for about 2 years and has been granted a loan in the amount of 50,000 PHP under the agricultural loan program. The proceeds will be used to buy feed and vitamins for her pigs. Laura's dream was to expand her business. Laura hopes that her piggery will expand with the help of ASKI and Kiva lenders.
