A loan helped to buy insecticides and fertilizer for his crops.

Edgardo's story

Edgardo, a farmer, is residing Cabiao, Nueva Ecija.

He is happily married and blessed with four children. He has been engaged in the farming industry, planting calamansi (a citrus fruit) for almost four years. His previous loan helped him to produce a good quality of vegetables because of the fertilizer he bought with his loan. He was able to deliver his calamansi fruit to the market. He has been a responsible client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran (ASKI) for about two years.

Edgardo is requesting again a loan amounting to PHP 30,000 under the agricultural loan program of ASKI. He will use his loan to buy insecticides and fertilizer for his crops. Edgardo is looking forward to expanding his business in the near future. He hopes that with the help of ASKI and Kiva lenders, he will become successful in his agricultural business.
