Esperanza's story

Esperanza is a good resident of Cabiao, Nueva Ecija in the Philippines. She is 52 years old, happily married to Pedro, and blessed with two children who are still pursuing their studies.

She has managed a piggery business for almost 11 years. Esperanza has a plan to increase her income for her piggery business so she requested a loan through ASKI and has now been entrusted with a loan of PHP 30,000 under the agricultural loan program of ASKI. Her loan will be used to buy feeds and vitamins for their pigs.

Esperanza's dream is for her family to have better living conditions and for her children to finish their education. She hopes that with the help of ASKI and Kiva lenders, they will have an additional farmland soon.
