Rose is 38 years old and married with three children, all of whom are dependent on her and need her support. Rose lives with her family in the province of Rizal in the Philippines. Her husband works long hours as a fisherman to support the family. To supply additional income, Rose wants to expand the family fishing business through additional working capital.

Rose would like to receive a loan of 10,000 PHP to purchase fish nets, rope, and additional materials. With additional equipment, Rose believes that her fish supply will increase, bringing higher revenue.

Over the course of her membership, Rose has achieved strong performance with regular attendance at group meetings and steady repayments. Rose is thankful for access to capital and loans to support her entrepreneurial dreams.

With the support of ASHI and Kiva, she is hopeful that their expanded business will continue to flourish to improve the family’s quality of life and fund all of her children’s college education.
