Evelyn's story

Evelyn is a good resident of General Tinio, Nueva Ecija. She is 54 years old, single, and happily living with her family. For almost 15 years, she has been engaged in managing a sari-sari store, selling chips, breads, canned goods, noodles, condiments etc., which is the source of her daily income. She has been a good borrower client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran, Inc. (ASKI) for about seven years.

Evelyn has again been entrusted with a loan, in the amount of 40,000 PHP, under the business loan program of ASKI. Her loan will be used to buy additional items to sell, like candies, rice grains, condiments, soaps, cigarettes, etc., to generate more income to sustain the needs of her family. Evelyn's dream is to expand her sari-sari store business and to make a better living. She believes that with the help of ASKI and KIVA funders she will be successful in life.
