A loan of $750 helped to purchase additional grocery items such as salt, cup noodles, fish paste, straw, breads, biscuits and canned goods.


Leticia's story

Leticia has been a simple businesswoman of Gonzaga, Cagayan, for seven years. A grocery industry is the only source of her income, and this is very difficult for her because she can't afford the demands of one family. Her profit is not enough to provide for the needs of her family’s demand (seven children). But despite the hardship of life, she sees the brightness of the other side.

She found ASKI as her partner in improving her business to become more productive. She is now asking for a loan amount of 30,000 PHP (Philippines pesos) to purchase additional grocery items such as salt, cup noodles, fish paste, straw, breads, biscuits and canned goods.

She said that she is fortunate that she has ASKI to help her, and most of all, she has our Almighty God that leads her into this organization. She hopes that Kiva lenders will provide more funds to help others in order to lift their beloved family from poverty.
