A loan of $575 helped to support the maintenance of her hog-raising business and pay for inventory for her store.


Myrna's story

Myrna R. is 53 years old. She is a single parent and a good mother to her three minor children. They currently live in Hamtic, Antique. She has been engaged in a hog-fattening business for more than eight years and also gets involved in a variety store as another source of household income.

She plans to utilize this loan of 25,000 Philippine pesos (PHP) to expand her hog-fattening business and variety store and to continue to be involved in other businesses for supplemental profits. This loan will be used to support the maintenance of her hog-raising and pay for inventory for her store. She believes that her business will help her family to rise up and fight against poverty.

During her eight years as a member of ASHI, Myrna has shown very good performance with her group mates and center. Having this loan will enable her to finally achieve her dreams in life: to have a successful business, to fund the educational needs of her children until they finish college and to have a better life and a happy family as well. She is very thankful to ASHI and Kiva for the continuous support of her dreams.
