May's story

May is a 32-year-old hardworking farmer and a mother from Cabiao, Nueva Ecija. She is happily married to Zaldy, and they are blessed with two children who are pursuing their studies.

May has been farming for almost 11 years. She plants eggplant and sells it once they harvest it. May has been a good-paying client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran Inc. (ASKI) for about three years. She used a previous loan to purchase quality fertilizer for her crops. Now, May is requesting a new loan amounting to 70,000 PHP under ASKI's agricultural loan program that she will use to buy fertilizer and insecticide for the easy growth of her new crops.

May is looking forward to expanding her farm business. She hopes that, with the help of ASKI and Kiva lenders, she can give a convenient life to her family.
