Sergio's story

Sergio is a 55-year-old piggery owner from Cuyapo, Nueva Ecija. He is single and focused on managing his business. He has been engaged in a piggery business to make a living for almost five years. He uses a motorcycle to deliver his pig's meat after butchering. Sergio has been a good borrower client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran (ASKI) Inc. for about three years.

Sergio has been granted a loan amounting to PHP 45,000 under the agricultural loan program of ASKI. His loan will be used to buy feed and vitamins for his pigs. Sergio wants to expand his piggery business so that he can create employment someday.

He believes that with the help of ASKI and Kiva lenders, he will conquer his dreams for his family.
