Editha's story

Editha C. is 55 years old and happily married to Yulo C., who is 59. Most of her children now have their own families. One child that is still living with them is Raquel, who is 25 years old and has received only a low level of education. That is one of their frustrations, not being able to send their children to college. That’s why Editha is trying her best, with the help of her husband, so that their grandchildren will never lack a college education.

Their main source of income is through their fishing business that is personally managed by Yulo, because he is a fisherman. Editha also runs a business, the direct-selling of items from Avon Company and from other companies that sell different personal products.

Since she joined the Kiva field partner, Ahon sa Hirap Inc. (ASHI), Editha has always used the loans that she received for their fishing business, to make it grow more. Now, her eighth loan will be used again for this business. Editha will buy necessary things like different fishnets, materials used for making a fish pond and many more. She is sure that after buying all of this their business will be more productive.

Editha's biggest dream is to make their business continue to grow and increase their income so that she can help with the education of their grandchildren.
