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

A loan helped to buy feed and vitamins for her pigs.

Alicia's story

Alicia is a 52-year-old farmer from Gapan City, Nueva Ecija. She is happily married to Reynaldo, a farmer, and blessed with three children, two of whom are still pursuing their studies. She has been engaged in a piggery business for almost 12 years. Her recent loan was used to pay for the needs of her piggery business.

Alicia has had a good repayment record in Alalay sa Kaunlaran, Inc. (ASKI) for about 11 years. She has been granted a loan amounting to 35,000 PHP under ASKI's agricultural loan program. Her loan will be used to buy feed and vitamins for her pigs.

Alicia's dream is to expand her piggery business and for her children to have a better future. She hopes that with the help of ASKI and Kiva funders, her dreams will come true.
