Lagrimas's story

Lagrimas is 60 years old and lives with her husband and her two children in Talim Island in the province of Rizal. She has been dedicating herself to the fishing business since she joined ASHI in 2005, but years ago she also started a hog-fattening business. This is how she earns a good income. She can also count on the help of her husband and her two children. As this business has proved to be profitable, she will keep on running it, as her aim is to increase her working principal. She will be very responsible with her payments and she is thankful to all Kiva lenders who will support the loan she is requesting. The loan will be used to buy more piglets, feed, and vitamins, and also to purchase raw materials for her fishing business. The capital will fund further expansion of the family ventures and support her dreams for her family to have a decent way of life. Lagrimas is a hard-working entrepreneur who is always looking for opportunities to grow. Through her daily effort, she is giving hope to her family.
