Judith's story

Judith is a 31-year-old hardworking businesswoman from San Jose, Nueva Ecija. She is happily married to Jayson, an Overseas Filipino Worker and blessed with two children. She has managed a canteen in their town for almost two years, where she sells different kinds of specialty foods that she cooks.

She is a new client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran (ASKI) Inc.

Judith has been granted a loan amounting to 40,000 Php under the business loan program of ASKI. Her loan will be used to buy ingredients for the food she cooks like fruit, vegetables, condiments, meat etc., so that she can offer more different classes of her specialty and generate more income to support her family needs.

She believes that with the help of ASKI and the Kiva lenders, she can provide a better life for her family.
