Nieves's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped with the maintenance of her tricycle, which is used for her transportation business.

Nieves's story

Nieves is a 57-year-old tricycle operator from Guimba, Nueva Ecija. She is happily married to Rolando and blessed with eight children.

She has been engaged in the motorcycle transportation business for almost seven years and has been a good, paying client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran Inc. (ASKI) for about five years.

Nieves has asked for a loan in the amount of 40,000 PHP under the business loan program of ASKI. Her loan proceeds will be used for the maintenance of her tricycle and she will purchase items such as gasoline and tires so she can continue providing good service to her valued customers and generate more income. This will help her to support her family's needs.

She believes that with the help of ASKI and Kiva lenders, her family will have a prosperous life.
