Rosalinda V. is 24 years old, married with two children, and lives in the province of Antique with her husband. Her husband works as a laborer to support the family. Her eldest child attends the local elementary school in the community and the youngest is a 10-month-old baby.

To supply additional income for her family, Rosalinda would like to receive a loan to start a new hog raising business. With the loan, she will purchase piglets and feed for them. She will raise them for approximately four to six months until they are ready for resale.

A new member of Ahon Sa Hirap, Inc. (ASHI), a Kiva micro-finance partner in the Philippines, Rosalinda is grateful for access to capital and other services such as savings and insurance. With the support of ASHI and Kiva lenders, Rosalinda is hopeful that her new business endeavor will provide steady income and improvements in her family’s quality of life.
