Rosemarie's story

Rosemarie B. is a resident of Libis, Binangonan, Rizal. She is 46 years old and a mother to four sons. She is education-oriented and makes sure her four children attend school regularly. Two of her children are college students, one is at high school, and the youngest is at elementary school. Rosemarie is married to Ricardo B., a barber and a supportive husband.

Rosemarie is busy retailing a variety of small items, a business she finds very productive. She learned the business from experience and using her own initiative in dealing with costumers. The proceeds of her business are a big help to the family, especially in meeting the educational needs of the children. Now Rosemarie is requesting a loan of 19,000 PHP from Kiva partner, ASHI (Ahon sa Hirap, Inc.). She will use the loan to buy volume stocks of different goods for her retail business.

Rosemarie's ambition is that her four children will be able to finish their schooling with a degree and find stable jobs. She and her husband have also a great dream of investing in a piece of land and building a house of their own. They have rented for almost 15 years now, which is why it is hard for them to save money. Rosemarie is hoping that, with ASHI's support, there is a big possibility that they can fulfill their dreams.
