Rosita's story

Rosita M. is 56 years old and is married to Zosimo M. who is one year older than her. The two were blessed with five children and four of those have their own families to manage now. Rosita's husband is a tailor, while she is a business woman. Ever since she had her own family, Rosita has tried different kinds of businesses to earn money for her family, especially for the education of her children. Through the support of her husband, she was able to send all of her children to school up to college. However, she did not have much time and capital to spend on her business. Her main priority then was family and the education of her children.

When Rosita's children became responsible for themselves and got their own careers, she thought of expanding her business to give herself time to be with other people in their community. She joined ASHI in 2007, and she finds that she is achieving her dreams. The amount she is qualified to loan from ASHI has increased, thus she has more options to enhance the variety store she started. Her new loan is intended for purchasing additional goods to be sold in her variety store. The profits she will earn from her business will be saved for her future plans of growing her mini variety store to a general grocery store, which can accommodate the needs of people who want to put up their own mini variety store someday.
