Aileen's story

Aileen A. is a 36-year-old mother of two. She hails from the beautiful city of Morong, Rizal Province in the Philippines. Her eldest daughter, Trixie, is a 16-year-old high school student. Her youngest, Jayvee, is a 15-year-old high school student. Aileen is married to 38-year-old Gilbert, her partner in business and a carpenter.

Aileen joined ASHI (Ahon Sa Hirap, Inc.), an MFI and a Kiva partner in the Philippines, in 2006. Since then, she has had to acquire capital for her business. She used her first to fourth loans for the direct selling of Avon and Natasha products. It has been great for her family. The business is running smoothly and bringing in enough proceeds. Now on her fifth loan, Aileen is applying for 25,000 pesos as additional capital for her business.

She hopes that in the near future, she can build a more durable concrete house. And she also dreams of sending her children to school up to college so they can find good jobs. She is hoping to have more stock for selling for her business.
