Maricris's story

Maricris is a hardworking fruit vendor residing with her family in Munoz, Nueva Ecija. She is 27 years old and happily living with her parents.

To make a living and to help her parents in providing their daily needs, she sells different fruit in the market for almost four years. Maricris has the eagerness to earn additional income so she applied for a business loan from ASKI amounting to PHP 50,000 to purchase additional fruits to resell.

Maricris wants to expand her business and dreams to become successful in life. Maricris believes that with the help of ASKI and Kiva lenders, her dreams will come true.
