Leonida's story

Leonida, 52, is a businesswoman from Talavera, Nueva Ecija. She is happily married to Adriano, a farmer, and blessed with 4 children. For about 13 years, she has been engaged in a sari-sari store business selling chips, breads, noodles, and canned goods. She has been a good-paying client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran (ASKI) Inc. for about 11 years. Leonida has been granted again a loan amounting to 50,000 PHP under the business loan program of ASKI. Her loan will be used to buy additional stock of her store products like candies, detergents, condiments, breads and so forth, so that she can generate a higher income to support her family needs. Leonida's dream is for the expansion of her business and for her children to have a better living. She believes that with the help of ASKI and KIVA lenders, her family will have a better living.
