Jocelyn's story

Jocelyn B. is a 36-year-old woman with the determination and faith to get out from the ties of poverty. She is a mother of six children who are all of minor age. She lives at Antipolo, in the province of Rizal, in the Philippines. She is married to Vicente, a private employee, but his salary is not enough for their daily needs.

As a woman of dreams, in 2005 she joined ASHI (Ahon Sa Hirap, Inc.), a Microfinance Institution and KIVA partner in the Philippines. Since then, she opened a general store and it really helped them to meet their needs. Now on her sixth loan, she wants to borrow Php 25,000 to pay for cases of soft drinks, liquor, rice, charcoal and groceries for her store.

She hopes that, with the help of ASHI and KIVA, she can reach her goal to step out from poverty, expand her business, and pay for the needs of her children in school.
