At 27 years old, Jeramie is blissfully married to Jay-ar, 29 years old, taho vendor, and they live happily with her two children, Justine and Jaymie, elementary grade school students. Jeramie lives in the mountainous province of Antipolo, Rizal, Philippines, where there is a lot of opportunity to start up a business and to look forward to making a living.

Jeramie is an underprivileged woman who aspires to rise out of poverty. She totally decided to join ASHI, an MFI and KIVA field partner, to access more capital for the growth of her business. She has been engaged in TAHO vending (“taho” means a kind of food made of soya, ready to eat) for almost two years. She plans to use her proposed loan of 20,000.00 pesos to expand her business and to get involved in selling frozen foods and beauty products at the market in order to earn a good income.

Jeramie desires a joyful life and a good income so her children can finish their studies until college. To realize all of these aspirations and hopes, she is "knocking your good heart" to support her simple dreams by means of supporting her loans.
