Adelia's story

Adelia, a 64-year-old businesswoman from Sta. Rosa, Nueva Ecija, is happily married to Pedro and blessed with six children.

Adelia runs a sari-sari (variety) store. She has been in this business for almost 20 years, and it supports her family's daily needs. She has been a good client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran, Inc (ASKI) for about 15 years. Adelia has been granted a loan in the amount of 60,000 PHP under ASKI's business loan program. She will use the loan to buy additional items to sell, including canned goods, noodles, breads, egg, soaps, etc. This will help her to increase her income and better support her family. Adelia's dream is for her children to have a better future and for her business to expand.

Adelia believes that with the help of ASKI (and Kiva), she and her family will have a victorious life!
