Emiline's story

Emiline F. is a devoted mother to her three children. She is married to her loving spouse, Joel F., a mechanical maintenance man, and lives in the beautiful province of Teresa, Rizal. She and her husband are engaged in a farming business and also operate a general store. Despite many challenges in their life, they never give up the fight against poverty.

She plans to utilize this loan of Php 45,000 to expand her farming business and to support her general store as their primary source of daily income. This loan will be used for additional capital for her farming business and half of the money will be used to pay for groceries for her general store.

During her 5 years at ASHI, she has shown very good performance as a member, and she is trusted by ASHI for her solid record. Aside from maintaining an excellent performance in repayment, business, and attendance in ASHI, Emiline has also cared for the needs of her children at home and in school.

This loan will enable her to finally reach her dreams in life: to have a growing business, a good life, and a happy family as well. She hopes the loans from ASHI, KIVA's field partner will support the education of all her children. She believes that her business will help her family to rise up and fight against poverty, as well as provide for the educational needs of her children. She is very grateful to ASHI and KIVA for the continuous love and support of her dreams.
