Manolito's story

Manolito is from Lupao, Nueva Ecija. He is 50 years old, happily married to his wife Arlyn, and blessed with two children who are still pursuing their studies. Felix is in the farming industry, growing rice, which has been the source of their daily income for almost 11 years. He earns 10,000 PHP per month. He delivers the rice to the public market.

Manolito has been a good paying client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran (ASKI), Inc. for about 11 years. He has been granted a loan amounting to 45,000 PHP under the agricultural loan program of ASKI. His loan will be used to buy fertilizer and prepare the land for the improved growth of his crops.

Manolito's dream is to have a better living for his family and for his children to finish their studies. He hopes that with the help of ASKI and the Kiva lenders, he will become successful in his agricultural business.
