Jasila
Jasila gets to work with her father every day on their farm. She had a previous loan with ASHI and because she was on-time with all of her payments, she was able to double the amount of this loan.

She and her father have a rice field and also grow vegetables. She is going to use the loan to buy fertilizer for the field and rice to plant. She is looking to increase the standard of living for her and her family by growing her business and increasing profits. She is excited to be a member of Kiva and says thank you for supporting her business.
