A loan of $650 helped to buy frozen food products.


Evelyn's story

A hard-working entrepreneur, Evelyn has run a busines buying and selling frozen foods for almost five years from Antipolo in the province of Rizal, earning a reasonable weekly profit. Evelyn’s main challenge has been having a small stock due to the hindrances of small working capital to put into her frozen foods venture.

In 2005, she joined ASHI, a Kiva partner in the Philippines, and is very grateful for secured access to capital and other services such as savings and insurance. This loan amounting 30,000 Php is to help Evelyn buy frozen food products to increase her stock to match her customers’ demands in the local area. She thinks that commercializing her business and expanding it will enable her to earn more revenue and be able to pay school fees for her three children and cater for other family needs. With access to additional working capital from Kiva supporters, Evelyn is hopeful her dreams of sending her children to a university to complete college degrees will be achieved. Evelyn’s wishes to give her children a brighter future fuel her dedication to her business.
