Grace's story

Grace is a 26-year-old farmer from Cuyapo, Nueva Ecija. She is happily married to Anthony, a seafarer, and they are blessed with one child, who is still pursuing her studies.

She has been engaged in the farming industry, planting rice, to make a living for almost two years. Additional income to her family is the salary of her husband, who works as a seafarer. Alalay sa Kaunlaran, Inc. (ASKI) supports Grace for the growth of her business and for the betterment of their living.

She has been entrusted with a loan request amounting to PHP 50,000 under the Housing loan program of ASKI. Her loan will be used to buy materials like cement, hollow blocks, metal steel, galvanized roof, etc. for the renovation of their house.

Grace wants to establish an additional business and to create employment for the less fortunate.

She believes that with the help of ASKI and Kiva lenders, her dreams will come true.
