Adora's story

Adora B. is from the village of Nungnungan, Cauayan City, Isabela. She is 58 years old. Adora is married and has three adult children. To make a living, Adora owns and operates a business raising livestock. While not the only means for generating revenue, the main source of income for the business comes primarily from raising pigs for fattening and sale. Adora has been engaged in her business for more than three years and earns approximately 7,000 PHP every four months.

In 2007, Adora joined ASKI to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Adora has successfully repaid a previous loan of 25,000 PHP from ASKI. This previous loan was used to to purchase breeding livestock. Adora is requesting a new loan of 15,000 PHP, which will be used to purchase livestock feed and other supplies. This loan will be the ninth loan taken out by Adora from ASKI. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve/expand her business.
