Arsenia's story

Arsenia believes that hard work and patience are necessary to attain success in life. She manages a sari-sari store (community based store) in her village. Expanding her business is one goal to meet the needs of her family to improve their living conditions. She is married to Rolly, a construction worker. She and her husband work hard to support their children and grand children. The couple is blessed with two children who are married. They happily live in the simple village of Rizal in Santiago City.

Arsenia is glad that she is able to generate a monthly income of PHP10,000 from her store and food vending business. This has been a great help in meeting their daily needs. Arsenia wanted to develop her business and is hoping for a loan from KIVA lenders in the amount of PHP12,000. She aspires to earn more and save for her future and for emergencies.
