Madonna's story

Madonna S. is from the village of South Caronsi, Peñablanca, Cagayan. She is 47 years old. Madonna is married and has 2 adult children. To make a living, Madonna operates a family member's business venture in the agriculture sector, raising crops. While not the only means for generating revenue, the main source of income for the business comes primarily from planting and harvesting a variety of vegetables for sale. Madonna has been engaged in her business for over 6 years and earns approximately 6,000 PHP a month for these activities.

Madonna joined ASKI to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Madonna has successfully repaid a previous loan from ASKI. Madonna is requesting a new loan of 15,000 PHP, which will be used to purchase fertilizers such as manure. This loan will be the 6th loan taken out by Madonna from ASKI. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve/expand her business.
