Morena's story

Morena is a 36-year-old hardworking mother of four children and resides in Jaen, Nueva Ecija. Together with her husband, Gabby, who is a vendor, they are determined and working hard to sustain the needs of their family.

Morena is engaged in managing a variety store in front of their house selling the basic commodities of a family. She has been a reliable client of ASKI for about one year. As years go by, they face challenges in life, but these difficulties make them stronger.

She wanted to apply for a loan amounting to PHP 50,000 to purchase materials such as cement, sand, hollow blocks and steel for the renovation of the kitchen.

Morena is thankful that ASKI offers this kind of loan to give them the opportunity to improve their life and transform their community.
