She is applying for another loan of Php 25,000.00 to finance the needed farm supplies for their growing rice plantation. Her husband will buy sacks of fertilizer and pesticides and pay for hire farming laborers to weed the farm. She is hoping that after 3 months their profit will increase. She is always praying for the success of the partnership of ASHI and KIVA in helping poor families.

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.
