Aileen's story

Work hard and be patient in overcoming the difficulties of life, shared Aileen. She is managing a little stall selling different snacks such as noodles, bread, candies and so on. She is a resident of Barangay Salvacion Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya. She was not able to pursue her college education because she got pregnant before getting married, when she was in her last year in high school.

To make her business grow, Aileen is requesting a loan from Kiva lenders amounting to PHP 5,000 as additional business capital. She wants to increase her income and as much as possible double her time for her child is already in his senior year in high school. Aileen wishes to provide her child with his need for education. She knows her son will be responsible for her when she grows old and thus she wants him attain his ambitions in life for their future. She once became a failure as a teenager but now is a proud mother without expecting help from others in managing her son’s education. She just hopes that lenders will grant her loan request.
