Arsenia's story

Arsenia is from Carranglan, Nueva Ecija. She is 53 years old, widowed and blessed with two children who are still pursuing their studies. To make a living for almost 30 years, she has managed a variety store in front of her house selling chips, breads, canned goods, candies, noodles, etc., which is the source of their daily needs.

Alalay sa Kaunlaran (ASKI) Inc., has supported her through loans for almost 11 years. Arsenia has been entrusted a loan amounting to PHP 60,000 under the business loan program of ASKI. Her loan will be used to buy additional stock of items to sell like candies, rice grains, condiments, soaps, cigarettes, frozen goods, etc., to generate more income to sustain the needs of her family.

Arsenia's dream is for her children to have a better living. She believes that with the help of ASKI and Kiva funders, she will be successful in life.
