A loan of $875 helped to support her sari-sari (variety) store.


Rosela's story

Rosela V. is thankful for the support she got from Kiva lenders for her sari-sari (variety) store and prays that they all be blessed. Rosela is requesting a new Kiva loan of 40,000 Php for her store. She has been able to improve her business due to her access to credit through Kiva lenders. Rosela is happy that she is able to augment her husband’s income and meet the needs of her family.

A committed member of Ahon Sa Hirap, Inc. (ASHI), a Kiva microfinance partner in the Philippines, Rosela has been a model member since 2002, demonstrating regular attendance at weekly meetings and steady repayment of previous Kiva loans.

Rosela’s business has helped her achieve her dreams. Her greatest ambition is that her family will be able to have a decent way of life.

Rosela and her family feel very glad about the service of KIVA lenders. It gives them a way to pursue their family dreams. Rosela hopes that they extend the service for a long time and help many families who want to get ahead and escape the spiral of poverty.

Her long term goals are to help support her grandchildren's education, invest, build a better house for the family, and to have a full-fledged mini-grocery store.
