As part of Mash’s corporate social responsibility initiative, we provide sustainable loans through KIVA to aid entrepreneurs in developing countries.
For the April entrepreneur of the month, we have chosen Josephine Omani, from Surallah, South Cotabato, Philippines. Mash have funded her entire project loan amount through KIVA.
Joesphine Omani is 48 years old, married and has five children, the oldest of whom is 23 years old.
For the last 22 years, she has made a living by farming rice and raising pigs. She sells her pigs at the local market and makes about 8,000 PHP a month from her work. She has applied for a loan through Kiva to buy seeds, fertilizers and farm supplies. Joesphine hopes to increase her income because this will allow her to save for her children’s future.
Mash are delighted to be helping Josephine and her family.
