A loan of $325 helped to use as additional capital for her general store.


Lilia's story

Lilia B. is a 66 year-old woman who hails from the beautiful land of Antipolo City, the capital city of Rizal province in the Philippines. Her husband died years ago and left her with a daughter, Dina, who is now 43 years old and a college graduate. Lilia is a member of the Rizalwest Branch of ASHI (Ahon Sa Hirap, Inc.), an MFI and KIVA partner in the Philippines.



Considering her age, Lilia has invested the money from her loans in a general store in her village. The business brings her enough income for her day-today living. She is now requesting a loan amounting for 15,000 pesos for additional capital for her store.



She dreams of helping her grandchildren with their school expenses with savings from her business. She also still dreams that someday her general store will grow and become a grocery store.
