A loan of $225 helped 10 bundles of fish nets and other equipment for fishing.


Digna's story

Digna D. is a woman of faith and courage who is trying to cut the string of poverty that hinders the dreams of her family. She is 37 years old and married to Reynaldo who is a fisherman and also a carpenter. She is the mother of three children. The family lives in the island village of Sapang in the town of Binangonan, Rizal province in the Philippines. Digna joined ASHI (Ahon Sa Hirap, Inc.), an MFI and KIVA partner in the Philippines, in 2008. When she got her first loan, she invested it in fishing. The business did well and now she is asking for a second loan, a loan of 10,000 pesos to pay for 10 bundles of fish nets and other equipment for fishing. Digna is hopeful that in the near future, her business will grow, and they will have more fishing gear--she even dreams of having her own fishing boat someday. She aspires to send her children to school until they finish schooling and find jobs.
