A loan helped to buy additional goods to sell such as canned goods, noodles, bread, eggs, and soap.


Baneza's story

Baneza is a 43-year-old businesswoman from General Tinio, Nueva Ecija. She's separated and blessed with three children. She's had a sari-sari (variety) store for almost five years, which is her source of supporting their daily needs.

She's been a good-paying client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran, Inc. (ASKI) for about four years. Her previous loan was used for the improvement of her variety store.

Baneza has been granted again a 50,000 PHP loan under ASKI's business loan program. Her loan proceeds will be used to buy additional goods to sell such as canned goods, noodles, bread, eggs, and soap, to gain more income which might help support her family needs. Baneza's dream is for her family to have a better life and to help others.

Baneza believes that with the help of ASKI and Kiva lenders, they'll have a victorious life.
