Reynaldo's story

Reynaldo is a fifty-seven-year old businessman from Aliaga, Nueva Ecija. He is happily married to Rosalinda, a vendor, and they are blessed with three children.

For about 12 years, he has been selling different kinds of vegetables to make a living. He has been considered a good paying client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran (ASKI), Inc. for about 8 years. Reynaldo has been granted a support loan amounting to 40,000 PHP under the business loan program of ASKI. His loan will be used to buy additional vegetables to sell and for the stall rental of his store.

Reynaldo's dream is for his family to have a better living. He hopes that with the help of ASKI and KIVA lenders, he will become successful in his vegetable business.
