Gloria's story

Gloria R. hails from the island village in the Municipality of Binangonan, Rizal Province in the Philippines. She is a 54-year-old woman and is married to Ricardo, a 56-year-old fish vendor. They are blessed with five children: three sons and two daughters. Their eldest son, Jerry, is 31-years-old and a college graduate working in a factory. The youngest daughter Myla is 26-years-old and a factory worker also. Gloria is a member of Rizal South Branch of ASHI (Ahon Sa Hirap, Inc.), an MFI and KIVA partner in the Philippines. Since before she entered ASHI, they were already engaged in selling fish and maintain a fish cage (small fishpond). Now on her 3rd loan, she proposes the amount of 15,000 pesos as additional capital for her business: the selling of fish from their own fish cage. They harvest fish from the fish cage and deliver or sell it to the markets. She is hopeful that her business will grow and will give them profit for its sustainability. With her business, she is looking forward to having bigger savings for their future and also to help her grandchildren in their school expenses and to get away from the cycle of poverty.
