A loan of $125 helped will be used to finance her general store business.


Elda's story

48-year-old Edna was successful in the business she had established through her five times loan in ASHI since 2004. However, most of the financial and emotional investments she had then vanished when her husband died just recently. She spend thousands of money for her husband's medication before the death and even until the burial. Having her only 11-year-old child beside her, Edna realized she has to be strong to restart running her general store business for her child's education and future.

From a Php12,000 previously, Edna chose to lessen the amount she will loan now despite her qualification for loaning large amount because she will start all over again and for the first time, without her husband's support. In the near future she believes that she will be able to grow her business again with loans she will be getting from ASHI.
