Ma. Salvacion's story

Ma. Salvacion A. is 32 and is married to Eduardo A., who is 36. They have 2 children. Ma. Salvacion sells food while her husband worked as an electrician in a privately-owned electronic shop, which repairs televisions and other electronic devices. Television repair was his major task. Though both Ma. Salvacion and her husband were earning, their income could not meet the increasing financial needs of their family. Therefore, Ma. Salvacion and her husband decided to request a loan from ASHI in order to start up their own business.

In Ma. Salvacion's house, a mini-electronic repair shop was set up and is managed by her husband, while she sells barbeque and entertains customers that come in. Eventually, her business grew and they were able to acquire many customers from all over the municipality. Ma. Salvacion requests a larger loan to sustain the increasing and growing demand of their business. Someday she hopes to have her own shop that can employ other people to work with her husband. She also dreams of sending her two children to college and that they have their own careers in the future.
