A loan of $350 helped additional working capital for her business.

Jocelyn's story

Jocelyn B. is a 34-year-old woman from the mountainous town of Antipolo, Rizal Province in the Philippines. She is still single but looking for the right man to comfort her when she becomes older. She is grateful to ASHI for offering her happiness in life and group support in achieving her goals.

In 2008, Jocelyn joined ASHI (Ahon Sa Hirap, Inc.), an MFI and KIVA partner in the Philippines. When she received her previous loans, she invested the money in buying and selling small items and later expanded the business with more stock.

Now on her 3rd loan, she requested 15,000 pesos as additional working capital for her business. She is positive that her business will grow since she already has regular customers placing orders with her.

She dreams of having a permanent space in the marketplace where she can sell her products. Her dreams are to build her own durable, concrete house and purchase her own land. She hopes to have a successful business that can provide her with a good life that is far away from poverty.
