A loan of $350 helped to purchase the needed raw materials for her handicraft business.


Vilma's story

Vilma M. is a strong mother who aims to become successful someday by developing her handicraft business. Vilma is thankful to ASHI; through the loans they have provided since 2006, Vilma has been able to maintain her handicraft business. She hopes to further improve her business in the future through hard work and with the continuous assistance of ASHI and its partner, Kiva.

Lack of business capital encouraged Vilma to ask KIVA lenders for financial support. She will be glad to have her loan request granted and will use the loan wisely by purchasing the needed raw materials for her handicrafts. Her hard work and perseverance are the basis for achieving a better life for her family. Her long term goal is to someday have her own booth for her products. Vilma hopes to maintain a long-term sustainable handicraft business.
