Leovy's story

Leovy is a 38-year-old farmer from General Tinio, Nueva Ecija. She is happily married to Freddie, a carpenter, and is blessed with four children.

She has been engaging in the farming industry, planting rice grains and selling the rice once harvested, for almost seven years. She delivers it to the rice dealers around her town. She earns 8,000 PHP to 10,000 PHP per harvest. She has been a good paying client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran, Inc. (ASKI) for about eight years.

Leovy has been granted a loan amount of 30,000 PHP under the agricultural loan program of ASKI. Her loan will be used to buy pesticides and fertilizer for her crops. Leovy wants to expand her business in the near future. Her dream is for her family to have a better living.

She hopes that, with the help of ASKI and Kiva lenders, her dreams will come true.
