Rolando's story

Rolando R. is from the village of Tamucco Sto.Niño, Cagayan. He is 40 years old. Rolando is married and has 4 adult children. To make a living, Rolando works in a family member's business venture in the agriculture sector, raising crops. The main source of income for the business comes from planting & harvesting corn for sale. Rolando has been engaged in his business for over 10 years and earns approximately 15,000 PHP every harvesting season.

In 2008, Rolando joined ASKI to gain access to financial services to help improve his living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Rolando has successfully repaid a previous loan of 15,000 PHP from ASKI. This previous loan was used to to purchase general farm supplies & equipment. Rolando is requesting a new loan of 18,000 PHP which will be used to purchase additional seeds, seedlings & young crops to raise. This loan will be the second loan taken out by Rolando from ASKI. He plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve/expand his business.
