Being a mother, Anabel T.’s aspirations in life are all focused on the welfare of her children. Despite living in poverty, she is determined to achieve her goals no matter how hard she needs to work to make this happen. She will do this with her husband, who is always by her side and committed to accompany her through life.

Today, Anabel's main goal is to build a home for her family and keep everyone safe from harm. She plans to pay for this home by raising pigs, and with help from her husband, who is an office worker. She joined ASHI in 2007 and has used several previous loans to establish her livestock business. She is now applying for a new loan to increase the number of piglets she can raise and sell for a profit.
