Most Outstanding ASKI Client - Ilagan, Isabela
Evangeline Alvarez, daughter of a tenant farmer and a vendor in Ilagan City, Isabela, was not able to finish high school. Poverty led Evangeline into vending vegetables to help her parents earn for the family. At an early age, she got married to Reynaldo, a baker who is also determined to progress.

The couple was able to purchase second-hand equipment to put up their own small bakery after selling their half-hectare land. Evangeline had to stop vending goods in different households to take care of their child. She then availed her first loan to ASKI and put up a retail store.

As their businesses grew, she and her equally hardworking husband ventured in other businesses. They now own a mini rice mill, piggery, meat shop, a truck and a jeepney.

Now a model citizen in her community, Evangeline serves in her community as a barangay official. In all of her success in life, she believes that to achieve success, "you need to start small to reach the big one."
