Rizza's story

Rizza is a good resident of Palayan City, Nueva Ecija. She is 38 years old, happily married to Rolly, and blessed with four children.

She has been engaged in farming for almost 4 years, and she plants tomatoes, which are the source of their daily living. Rizza has been a good borrower of Alalay sa Kaunlaran Inc. (ASKI) for more than two years.

She has been entrusted with a loan of 30,000 PHP under the agricultural loan program of ASKI. The loan will be used to buy fertilizers and insecticides for her crops. Rizza's dreams are to expand her farm and for her children to finish their studies to have a better life.

She hopes that with the help of ASKI and the KIVA lenders she can uplift their life from poverty.
