Rosalinda's story

Rosalinda G. is so happy to have reached the age of 47. Despite poverty, she has been able to raise her six children, whose ages are now from five to 20 years old. Her husband is very supportive and loving towards her and that is why she became so eager to work harder to achieve her dreams for her children and for changing her family's standard of living.

When she became a member of ASHI, she started her own business of doing manicures and pedicures to help her husband with another source of income. All throughout the loans she received from ASHI since she became a member, there was never a time that she had a problem in repayment because she knows how to budget her finances for the business and family.

During harvest, some of the profit from her rice selling was saved and some was reinvested in the business along with the loan she requested to grow her business further. Her daily income out of her manicure/pedicure business is used to pay her weekly amortization in ASHI. Most of the time her profits are less than the expenses, so the loans Rosalinda takes from ASHI are a great source to reinforce her capital.

Now that Rosalinda’s children are at a higher education level, they need a larger amount of money for their educational expenses. Therefore, with her and her husband’s broad experience in running their rice planting business, she would like to grow it further. However, she needed a larger amount of capital. To address her problem, she would like to request a loan from ASHI. Rosalinda also hopes that she will have a good harvest and favorable profits so her younger children can graduate from college, unlike her eldest who is now 20 years old.
