Annie's story

Annie E. lives with her family in the province of Antique in the Philippines. Her husband works long hours as a fisherman to support the family. To supply additional income, Annie would like to receive a loan of 15,000 Philippine pesos (PHP) to purchase raw materials needed in her fishing business, such as fishing net, and for the maintenance of her fishing boat. With more fish to catch and sell, Annie believes that sales will increase, leading to higher revenue. As a dedicated member of Kiva partner ASHI, she ensured strong performance with regular attendance at group meetings and steady repayments. Annie is thankful for access to capital and loans to support her entrepreneurial dreams. With the support of ASHI and Kiva, she is hopeful that her business will continue to flourish to improve the family’s quality of life and fund all of her children’s educations until they finish college.
