A loan of $225 helped tricycle maintenance.


Daffodil's story

Daffodil is 38 years old and has five children, two sons and three daughters. She lives with her family in the province of Rizal in the Philippines.

To supply additional income for her family, Daffodil is starting a tricycle business. A tricycle is a motorcycle with a sidecar attached, used as a public utility vehicle.

Daffodil would like to receive a loan to pay for the maintenance of it. As a member of Ahon Sa Hirap, Inc. (ASHI), a Kiva microfinance partner in the Philippines, Daffodil 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 generate steady income to improve her financial stability and her family’s quality of life. Her long-term dreams are to continue to support her children and to build a stronger home that can withstand the flooding common in her area.
