Liezel's story

Liezel O., from the village of Parog Parog, Solana, Cagayan, is 27 years old, married, and has two infant-aged children. To make a living, Liezel owns and operates a business raising pigs for fattening and sale. Engaged in her business for over three years, she earns approximately 4500 PHP when she sells one of her raised animals.

Liezel joined ASKI to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Having repaid her previous loan of 12000 PHP from ASKI, she is requesting a new loan of 14000 PHP to purchase livestock feed and other supplies. This will be Liezel's fifth loan from ASKI, and she plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to supplement the family's income.
