Janet's story

Janet M. is from the village of Little Tadian. She is 33 years old. Janet is married and has two school-aged children. To make a living, Janet owns & operates a business raising pigs for breeding.

In 2010, Janet joined ASKI to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Janet has successfully repaid a previous loan of 5,000 PHP from ASKI. This previous loan was used to purchase baby pigs to raise & sell in the future. Janet is requesting a new loan of 7,000 PHP, which will be used to purchase feed & other supplies. This loan will be the second loan taken out by Janet from ASKI. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to pay the tuition fees for her children.
