A loan of $1,075 helped to purchase materials for making a raft for fishing.


Rhenee's story

Rhenee P. believes that poverty is not a hindrance to one’s success. Being a member of ASHI, Kiva's field partner in the Philippines, she feels privileged for having such great help. Through the financial assistance offered by the institution, she has been able to start an inland fish culture and has the ability to support her rice farming business. Proceeds from these businesses have been the source for Rhenee’s family to obtain their basic needs and improve their quality of life; at this point, their only 13-year-old child is not yet incurring a large amount of money for his education. However, Rhenee still wants to save some of her profit to be able to send her child to a high standard school for good quality education in college. With her husband partnering her in the business, Rhenee is requesting a larger loan to purchase materials for manufacturing a “balsa” (raft) to be used for fishing and to increase the volume of fish they farm. In so doing, they will be able to supply their customers' increasing demands and increase their profit.
