Rea's story

Rea is a 36-year-old businesswoman from General Tinio, Nueva Ecija. She is happily married to Rodrigo and blessed with two children. She has operated her sari-sari, or small general store, selling chips, bread, candies, canned goods and the like for almost 10 years now.

Rea has been a responsible client of Alalay sa Kaunlaran (ASKI), Inc. for about 6 years. Her recent loan was used to purchase additional items in her store to resell and get a higher income.

She has been granted again a loan of 30,000 PHP under the business loan program of Kiva's field partner ASKI. She will use the money to buy materials like cement, hollow blocks, and steel bars for the renovation of their house. She believes that with the help of ASKI and Kiva lenders, she will become a great micro-entrepreneur.
