Crispin's story

Crispin is from Cabiao, Nueva Ecija. He is 33 years old, single, and happily living with his family. Crispin has been engaged in the farming industry, which is the source of their daily living, for almost 8 years.

Crispin has been a good paying client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran (ASKI), Inc., for about one year. He wants to improve their water connection, that's why he is applying for a loan amounting to 30,000 to purchase cement, metal pipe, and a jetmatic pump.

Crispin's dream is for his family to have a better living. He is determined to uplift the life of his family from poverty. He hopes and prays that with the help of ASKI and the Kiva lenders, he will become successful in his agricultural business.
