Jean's story

31-year-old Jean F. is a member of KIVA field partner in the Philippines which is ASHI for five years. Along with her children who range in age from nine to 11 and husband who is a farm laborer, she resides in a nature rich municipality of Sebaste in Antique province. There she practiced her reproductive and productive role being a woman. Her loan in ASHI was used to start up a business she can manage herself to be able to have her own income to support her family needs especially that of her children. Presently, Jean’s income through her small business is not yet enough to support her dream of giving her children best things in life. Her husband’s income is sporadic and insufficient for a support. Therefore, she wanted to request a much larger amount of loan from ASHI to grow her business. With ASI and KIVA Jean believes that she has a lot of things to do in life for her family through her business.
