Aileen's story

Aileen P. is from the village of Cagay-anon, Sinacaban, Misamis Occidental. She is 29 years-old and married with two school-aged children. To make a living, Aileen owns and operates a business operating transportation services. While not the only means for generating revenue, the main source of income comes from operating tricycle transport services. Aileen has been engaged in her business for over five years and earns approximately 2,500 PHP a month.

In 2009, Aileen joined Kiva partner GDMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Aileen is requesting a new loan of 15,000 PHP which will be used to purchase tires and other accessories. This loan will be the second loan taken out by Aileen from GDMPC. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve the general living conditions of her family.
