A loan helped to buy feed and vitamins for her ducks.

Lucita's story

Lucita is an outstanding resident of Jaen, Nueva Ecija. She is 55 years old and happily married to Edgardo. They are blessed with one child who is still pursuing his studies.

Lucita has been raising ducks and selling duck eggs for almost 22 years. She has been a reliable client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran (ASKI) for about 11 years. Lucita has again been granted a loan in the amount of 30,000 PHP under ASKI’s business loan program. The money will be used to buy feed and vitamins for her ducks so that they can lay eggs within a short period of time. Lucita's dream is for her success and for her child to finish his studies to have a better living.

With the help of ASKI and Kiva lenders, Lucita hopes to acquire farmland soon.
