Visitacion D. G. is a 63-year-old mother of two. Her husband is a farmer who works a small parcel of land. They live in a village ten kilometers away from the town proper of Libertad, Antique, the last town of the northern part of the province, where job opportunities are very few.

Visitacion sells vegetables to help support the family. Her two sons were not able to enroll in college after their secondary graduation. The family's income is not enough to send them to college. She is grateful to have ASHI (Ahon sa Hirap, Inc.) in their village so she can get capital to start a new business. She applied for this loan to buy native chickens to raise. She hopes that her membership will bring them good faith to improve their livelihood status.
