During her almost one year in ASHI, Rodalyn has shown herself to be hardworking and she has strong belief to make her dreams come true. Rodalyn still dreams of the best for her family: to provide the best education for her children and to have a happy family.
Now on her second loan, Rodalyn requests 9,000 Philippine pesos to create a broader business. Specifically, the money will be used to purchase cotton and planel for her sewing business and an inventory of rice for her buy and sell business. She is very determined and disciplined to utilize the money which is lent to her.
Rodalyn is grateful to ASHI-Kiva partners for the support, even with all the dreams and challenges in her life.
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.
