A loan of $200 helped to finance a wood lamination and photography business.


Editha's story

Editha D. is 50 years old and is married to Perlito D.. They were given 2 children: Evelyn, 19 years old and in 2nd year college and Cristy, 17 years old and only graduated from high school because she cannot afford to go to college. Editha works hard because she wants her two children to finish their studies through college. If Editha cannot afford to send both of the girls to college, the older daughter has promised that, if ever she would finish her studies and get a job, she will send her younger sibling to college.

The main source of the family's income is their wood lamination business. In this business they develop a customer's photographs and then make wooden picture frames for them. An example is the graduation picture shown here. Since Editha became a member of Kiva field partner Ahon sa Hirap Inc. (ASHI), she has always used the loans that she received from the institution to improve this business. The wood lamination business provides the family with their daily expenses and the expenses in school of the older child. The whole family works together to make this business run.

Editha dreams that their business continues to grow because it will bring a better life to their whole family.
