Franie's story

Franie M. S.. is from the village of Sinamar, Roxas, Isabela. He is 42 years old. Franie is married and has 2 school-aged children. To make a living, Franie owns and operates a 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 corn for sale. Franie has been engaged in his business for over 20 years and earns approximately 11,000 PHP a month for these activities.

In 2007, Franie joined ASKI to gain access to financial services to help improve his living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Franie has successfully repaid a previous loan from ASKI. This previous loan was used to purchase additional seeds, seedlings and young crops to raise. Franie is requesting a new loan of 35,000 PHP which will be used to purchase additional seeds, seedlings and young crops to raise. This loan will be the 8th loan taken out by Franie from ASKI. He plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to pay the tuition fees of his children.
