Marivic's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy fertilizer and pay for the preparation of her fields for crops.

Marivic's story

Marivic is 46 years old and resides in Laur, Nueva Ecija. She is happily married to Allan, and they are blessed with four children, all of whom are still pursuing their studies.

For about 11 years, Marivic has been farming, planting and selling rice as a source of daily income. Marivic has been a reliable client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran (ASKI) for approximately one year and has now been granted a new 50,000 PHP loan under ASKI's agricultural loan program that she will use to buy fertilizer and prepare the land for planting her crops.

Marivic is looking forward to working hard so that she can expand her farm. She believes that with the support of ASKI and Kiva lenders, her plans will come true!
