When she joined Kiva field partner Ahon sa Hirap Inc. (ASHI), she wisely used every loan that she received. She always used it to improve her variety store, like today when she will use her loan to buy assorted groceries to sell in her store. She is hoping that her business will always do well.
One dream of Aireen's is that her children finish college. They would do everything just to make this dream possible.
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.
