Josephine's story

Josephine M. is happy-looking because she feels so excited about the support that she got from Kiva lenders for her fishing business in her previous loan. Josephine prays they may all be blessed. She has a sound team relationship with Kiva as well as her ASHI partnership. Now she is requesting another Kiva loan to continue growing her fishing business. She has been able to improve her business due to her access to credit with a bigger loan from Kiva Lenders. In addition, Josephine revealed the huge impact the loan has had in her family, as she was able to afford to buy desired food items for the family to eat and still ensure prompt weekly payment of her obligation to ASHI and cover other needs. She is also happy because she is able to feed her husband well and still cover the needs of the family. What Josephine hopes right now is that their business will continue to be successful, because this has been their life, providing for their family. They love what they do in creating business achievements. Josephine's fishing business has been very helpful in achieving her children's dreams.
