A loan of $800 helps to buy feed and vitamins for her pigs.


Maricel's story

Maricel is a 41-year-old farmer from Gapan City, Nueva Ecija. She is happily married to Robert (also a farmer) and blessed with two children, who are still pursuing their studies.

Maricel has been engaged in the piggery business for almost eight years. She has been a reliable client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran, Inc. (ASKI) for about 5 years. She has been granted a loan amounting to 40,000 PHP under the agricultural loan program of ASKI. Her loan will be used to buy feed and vitamins for her pigs.

Maricel hopes that with the help of ASKI and her loan funders, her piggery will expand.
