Nenita Ceriaco is one of the oldest members of ASHI-Antique South Branch. She is 64 years old and is from Maybato North, San Jose, Antique, Philippines. She is married to Manuel C., a farmer.

She has been an active member of ASHI for almost 14 years. Being a member, she joins in the various activities of the institution, which have a big part in improving not only her living conditions but also the social aspects of her life.

Though some of her children have not attended school, she never stop dreaming for their future. She has already fully paid her previous loan and now she is proposing PHP 40,000 for her next loan. This amount will be used to purchase a fishing boat.

This fishing boat will be very useful, not only for her, but also for her son. He will operate the boat and it could provide him an income. She is hopeful that this project will help her son to send her grandchildren to school.

If they are blessed with a big income, they will repair their house and she also wants to have savings for their future needs.
