Jinalyn B. is a mother who aspires to a better future for her four year old daughter. She and her husband Jomarie agreed to get a loan from ASHI in order to attain her aspiration in life. In 2007, Jinalyn joined ASHI. That year, she only received PHP5,000 loan. After two years of maintaining her good performance in ASHI such as a good repayment record and a good attendance in center meetings, she is now qualified to apply for a loan in a higher amount.

Just recently, Jinalyn applied for a loan from ASHI amounting to PHP14,000. This loan will be used as additional capital for the business she had been doing since the time she joined ASHI - her buy and sell fish business.

Through the opportunity Jinalyn receives from ASHI, she believes that her loan will not only enhance her business and child's education but also will provide her family a secured house.
