Gerlie's story

A business-minded woman from San Roque, Cardona in a beautiful province of Rizal has been engaged in her business for more than two years. Her business is direct selling of Avon products. She is also involved in the Fish Cage business. She believes that if her proposed loan is granted, it will be a big help for the expansion of her business. That is why she is very determined and disciplined to use the money which is lent to her. She disciplined herself to use all the money borrowed from ASHI, a KIVA partner, for her business to gain more profit. This profit is what she uses for daily expenses. She got involved with ASHI because of the family's dreams to send her children to school and finish their studies with a degree. She is a good mother of her two children and still dreams of the best for her family. She belongs to a poor family who needs help to change their standard of living and provide a beautiful house for her family in the future. All of these goals in life are supported by her loving husband, Norman A., a 23-year-old factory worker. Through the love between the couple, they are blessed with one child, Angelica A., 4 years old. This is the story of 28-year-old Gerlie A., a focused mother who is hopeful for her dreams.
