Jasmin's story

Jasmin is a 26-year-old businesswoman. She resides in the town of Jaen, Nueva Ecija, where she manages an upholstery business – making sofa beds and chairs. Although she gets a small profit from the venture, she and her laborer double their time to finish they products. They offer custom furniture. Jasmin is working hard to support her family and to give them a better living.

Jasmin is looking to purchase additional materials such as rubber, wood, foam, glue, etc., to make extra sofas and chairs she can make and sell to earn additional income. She is hoping to receive a loan of 50,000 PHP to go ahead with her business plan. She believes that with the help of the ASKI and KIVA lenders, she will be successful in life.
