Gloria's story

Gloria is a good resident of Gapan City, Nueva Ecija. She is 47 years old, happily married to Joel, and they are blessed with four children. Gloria has been engaged in a sari-sari (variety) store business for almost nine years. Aside from managing a sari-sari store, she also owns a piggery business which is also the source of their daily living.

Gloria has been a good borrower client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran Inc. (ASKI) for about eight years. She has been granted a loan amounting to PHP 50,000 under the agricultural loan program of ASKI. Her loan will be used to purchase feeds and vitamins for her pigs.

Gloria's dream is for her family to have a better living and for her children to finish their studies. She believes that with the help of ASKI and KIVA lenders, her piggery will expand.
