Julia's story

Julia S. is a 41-year-old mother of three. Her husband Dante is a tricycle driver. She buys and resells bangus fry (bangus is a local name for milk fish) to help support the family. She started getting loans from ASHI (Ahon sa Hirap, Inc.) in 2002. Her past loans have been used for many things for the house and for the education of her eldest daughter who just graduated with a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management. She applied for this loan to finish paying off the old tricycle (motorcycle with sidecar) from her previous loan and to make a partial payment on a brand new motorcycle. She hopes that in the future she will be able to save enough money to expand her business and build a better house. She also dreams of sending her other two children to college.
