A loan of $425 helped to buy supplies for her store.


Nenita's story

Nenita, a 38-year-old mother to four boys and three girls, is married to Dominador, an electrician. She lives in Morong, Rizal Province in the Philippines, where she operates a sari-sari store.



With her aspiration to rise above poverty, she joined ASHI (Ahon Sa Hirap, Inc.), an MFI and KIVA partner in the Philippines, in 2004. Her previous loans have been wisely spent on her store, and the business is running smoothly, her loyal customers consisting mainly of her village neighbors. Nenita is now requesting a loan of 20,000 pesos as her sixth loan from ASHI to buy five sacks of rice, one sack sugar, 20 sacks of charcoal, and groceries for her store. Her investments in her store yield sound profits which help her meet the needs of her family.



She dreams of expanding her business into a much bigger grocery store and sending her children to school up to the college level.
