Novegilda's story

Novegilda is a 40-year-old businesswoman from Aliaga, Nueva Ecija. She is happily married to Harrison, a medical representative, and blessed with two children. She has been engaged in selling rice cakes to earn for a living for almost five years.

She has been a good-paying client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran Inc. (ASKI) for about four years. Novegilda has been entrusted again with a loan amount of PHP 50,000 under ASKI's business loan program. Her loan will be used to buy ingredients like flour, sugar, eggs, milk, flavorings, etc. to make more rice cakes to sell.

Novegilda's dream is to expand her business and to have a food stall. She believes that with the help of ASKI and Kiva lenders, her dreams will come true.
