A loan of $550 helped to fully pay the balance remaining on her tricycle.


Cecille's story

Cecille C. is a 30-year-old mother of an only son, Razzel C.. She is married to Randy, a 37 year-old driver and a construction worker and lives in Talim Island, Rizal Province in the Philippines. Cecille is strong and full of courage to lift her family out of poverty.

Cecille operates a passenger tricycle (a motorcycle with sidecar) and tends to a business making peanut butter at the same time. She started these businesses only when ASHI gave her an opportunity to acquire a loan. The businesses are a big help for her family in covering their expenses and in being able to set aside savings for the future.

Cecille is requesting a loan of PHP 25,000 to fully pay the balance remaining on her tricycle. She hopes that her business will become successful someday.

Cecille also hopes that, with the help of ASHI and Kiva, she can reach her dreams in life: sending her only son to school until he finds a job, expanding her business, and even plans to have fishing business someday. Now, she said, my dreams are almost within reach.
