Fanny's story

Fanny H. is a woman of faith and courage to overcome poverty that impedes the way of her family to success. She is 31 years old and married to Oliver, who is 34 years old and a vendor. She is a mother to three; a girl and two boys. All of her kids are still young and in elementary grades. She lives in the island village in the town of Binangonan, Rizal province in the Philippines. In 2006, she joined ASHI (Ahon Sa Hirap, Inc.), an MFI and Kiva partner in the Philippines, with hopes of having access to capital for her business of raising hogs. Her previous loans were her capital in starting the business of hog raising and she manages it well and it brings in good income. She wants to continue the business and will make more investments in it. Now she is requesting a loan of 25,000 pesos as her fifth loan in ASHI to pay for five piglets, 14 sacks of assorted feeds, vitamins and transportation expenses. She believes that her hog raising business will grow and she dreams of expanding it and making it a pig farm. She also dreams of sending her children to school until they finish college and find jobs.
