A loan of $225 helped to purcahse additional pigs for fattening and their feed until they are ready for sale.


Folrenia's story

Florenia is a very productive mother and grandmother for her children and grandchildren. Previously, she sold pigs that she fattened and has able to help her children support the education of her grandchildren. Out of her profit she bought another pig to replace the one she sold. Furthermore, Florenia has able to sustain her variety store whose profits have provided her with her daily needs until now.

For a hard working "Lola" (grand mother) and "Nanay" (mother), her dreams would mean nothing if not because of the support of people around the world through Kiva and if not because of their loan entrusted to her through ASHI. With that, Florenia is so thankful for the opportunity extended to her and her family. Since she repaid the whole amount she received from Kiva through a previous loan, now she is requesting a much larger amount, which she will use to purchase another pig/hog for fattening in addition to the one she has. Once it is sold, her profits will doubled, as will the capital. The pigs can either be sold alive or slaughtered to meat vendors or people around their village.
