A loan of $375 helped to buy earrings, necklaces, bracelets and watches for her business.


Jema's story

Jema lives in Binguang with her husband and their five children. In order to help her husband with the household expenses, she started selling earrings and necklaces as a traveling saleswoman. She's 27 years old, and has been a seller for seven years. She gets her supplies in Tuguegarao province of Cagayan. Thanks to the quality of her products, she has several customers in her village, whom she cannot satisfy anymore. She's therefore seeking a first loan from Kiva's parter, WAGES, in order to resupply. Her future prospects include expanding her business and ensuring her children's future.
