In Ma. Salvacion's house, a mini-electronic repair shop was set up and is managed by her husband, while she sells barbeque and entertains customers that come in. Eventually, her business grew and they were able to acquire many customers from all over the municipality. Ma. Salvacion requests a larger loan to sustain the increasing and growing demand of their business. Someday she hopes to have her own shop that can employ other people to work with her husband. She also dreams of sending her two children to college and that they have their own careers in the future.
Ahon Sa Hirap, Inc. has the distinction of being the oldest existing replication of Grameen methodology for delivering credit to the poor in the Philippines. With more than a third of the nation’s 90 million Filipinos living below the poverty line, ASHI was established with the vision of helping to alleviate poverty in the Philippines. Translated from Tagalog, Ahon Sa Hirap means “to rise above poverty.”
Empowering women dedicated to supporting their families through hard work and dedication, ASHI lends 100% to women and specifically the bottom 50%, so the “poorest of the poor.” In addition to general business loans, ASHI also offers educational loans, house repair loans, savings funds, and social development programs for its members. ASHI is committed to translating its social mission into practice.
