Jasmin's story

For over 17 years, Jasmin, a 41-year-old married mother of 2 children, has made a living through the operation of a retail store selling a variety of food and home-use products in Bitoon, Ozamis City, Misamis Occidental. She earns PHP 9,000 a month for these activities.

In 2009, Jasmin joined Kiva's partner, GDMPC, to gain access to financial services to help improve her business and living situation. She is now requesting a loan of PHP 10,000 to purchase new items such as candies, milo, bottled water, etc. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the loan as a reserve for future emergencies.
