Jocelyn's story

Jocelyn V. is 35 years old and the mother of two children. In 2008, she joined Ahon sa Hirap, Inc.(ASHI), a partner MFI of KIVA in the Philippines. She is excited as she recalls all her experiences as a mother and a member of ASHI. Before joining ASHI, she remembers how hard it was to start a business, especially without having access to capital. Her prayer was granted when she became a member of the institution and started taking loans. She started earning and can regularly provide their basic needs. She is applying again for a loan of PHP 17,000 to buy additional grocery items, soft drinks and raw products for her food vending business. She wishes to expand her food vending business because she notices the increase of customers eating in her place. She plans to establish a more convenient place for her customers to eat and add more menus for them to choose from. She is hoping that KIVA lenders will support her future plans.
