A loan of $375 helped repairing and upgrading her tricycle.

Jenny's story

Jenny is a 32-year-old woman married to Misael, a driver, and they have two small children (aged 3 and 4). They make their home in Pandan, a beautiful coastal town in the north of Antique province.

When Jenny started her business two years ago with ASHI (the field partner), it was to buy a tricycle for her husband to drive so they could make money. A tricycle is the most common form of transportation here, especially for the poor. It's a motorbike with a side car that people ride short distances in to get from A to B.

Jenny has paid off all of her previous loans and is now seeking a loan to buy parts for the tricycle to make it run smoother, such as brake pads, engine sprockets, new tires, bearings, and a new chain.

Everything she does, she does for her children. She dreams one day of having more than one tricycle and a shop where her and her husband can store them overnight and make repairs. Ultimately, she would like to send her children to college.

Jenny thanks you for your consideration in supporting her loan.
