Melecia's story

Melecia is from the busy town of Angono, Rizal province, in the Philippines. She is determined to remove her family from the darkness brought by poverty. She is widowed and has two children to take care of. With her desire to earn an income through a business, in 1999 she joined ASHI (Ahon Sa Hirap, Inc.), an MFI and KIVA partner in the Philippines. Her loans were used as capital for her Sari-sari store (General Store). She is one of the outstanding members of ASHI . As her business is properly managed, it brings her enough income to sustain the needs of her family. She is now excited to receive her loan of 25,000 pesos as additional capital for her Store. Specifically, the amount will be used to pay for cases of soft drinks, beverages, liquors, canned goods, and groceries. She is hopeful that she can earn more and save for the future of her children, and be able to send them to school until they finish college and find jobs. She also aspires to expand her business.
