Isabelita's story

Isabelita is a 42-year-old businesswoman from Jaen, Nueva Ecija. She is single and focuses on managing her business.

She has been engaged in a sari-sari (variety) store business selling chips, breads, canned goods, etc... for about eight years to earn for a living. Isabelita has been a good client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran (ASKI) Inc. for about 5 years.

Her previous loan was used to purchase additional items for her store. She has been granted a loan of 35,000 PHP under the business loan program of ASKI. Her loan will be used to buy additional stocks of products like candies, noodles, condiments, soft drinks, etc... to generate a higher income to support her family's needs.

Isabelita's dream is to become successful in life. Isabelita believes that with help of ASKI and KIVA lenders, her sari-sari store will turn into a grocery store soon.
