A loan of $325 helped as rolling capital for her resale business.


Beatriz's story

Beatriz is a woman determined to rise above poverty. She is a 35-year-old mother to five children; all young and still dependent on her. She lives in Antipolo City, Rizal province in the Philippines.

She is an opportunity seeker. In 2008, when she heard about ASHI (Ahon Sa Hirap, Inc.), an MFI and KIVA partner in the Philippines, she grabbed the opportunity of joining it. Her previous loans were used as capital for her resale of assorted biscuits that she sells in schools and in public places.

Now on her 3rd loan, she proposes the amount of 15,000 pesos as additional capital for her business. The loan will be used as rolling capital for her resale business. She is hopeful that with the opportunity and trust given by ASHI and KIVA, she will be able to make her business grow so it will bring her enough proceeds for her living. She dreams of sending all her children to school until they finish college and find jobs.
