Eudisa B. together with her husband and children hope that their fishing and wholesale fish selling business will grow and become sustainable. Aside from Eudisa’s dream of helping her three unemployed children have their own source of income, she also wants her business to generate employment outside of family members. Above all this, she wants her youngest daughter to graduate from high school and college to be able to find herself a better paying and stable job in the future.

Eudisa believes that her dreams will forever be just a vision without access to a loan. Therefore, through her membership in ASHI, she is requesting a much larger amount to finance the growth of her business, and her profits will be used to improving their standard of living as well as to help people in need of job.
