Helen
Hardworking mother, these characteristics simply describe Helen Miquel of Pajo, Libertad, Antique, Philippines. She is 38 years old and married to Artus M., a laborer. They are blessed with three children: Yvone Grace, Aira Jane, and Vince Henson.

She has been an active and very good member of ASHI Antique Northwest Branch for almost three years. As a member, she maintains her very good performance because she is aspiring to borrow a larger amount of capital someday.

Helen is a mother who always dreams of a good future for her children and she wants to give the best for them. She dreams that someday all of their children will finish their studies until college. That is why from now on they are starting to save for the future of their children.

For her next loan, she is applying for PHP 24,000. This will be used to purchase a new fishing net so that they will get more fish and therefore have a bigger income. The income that they will be earning from this business will be a great help for them to sustain their basic needs.

About ASHI

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.
