Lourdes's story

Lourdes is a 65-year-old businesswoman from San Pascual, Talavera, Nueva Ecija. She is happily married to Lazaro, a vendor, and blessed with four children. She has been engaged in selling vegetables using a bicycle for almost 27 years. According to her, the business is helpful to her to provide the needs of her family. She has been a good paying client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran Inc. (ASKI) for about 14 years.

Lourdes has been granted another loan amounting to 25,000 Philippine pesos under the business loan program of ASKI. Her loan proceeds will be used to purchase additional stock of vegetables that she will sell to generate a higher income to support her family's needs.

Lourdes hopes that with the help of ASKI and Kiva lenders her business will expand.
