Rosita A. is blessed to send all her children to college and have their own family. The couple worked together to grow their business. Rebecca joined ASHI (Ahon Sa Hirap, Inc.) to get capital to support her store. She is applying for a loan to buy assorted feed varieties to retail.

Aside from the purpose of earning an income, she wants to serve her neighbors in the village in order for them not to have to go to the town proper anymore just to buy a kilo of feed. She hopes that in the future, she can have a stall in the market and save for their old age.
