Alesandra's story

Since Alesandra got married to Reynaldo, she raised pigs in their backyard. Over those years, hog fattening wasn't really a business for her yet it is just a sporadic livelihood activity. She had no source of capital then to sustain her grow the activity to become a business since she had no access to credit. Her husband's irregular income being a laborer is yet insufficient for the family daily exnpenses especially of her five children who range in age from one to 13 years now.

Alesandra wanted ever since her livelihood to become a stable source of income or to say a business that is why, In 2004, she joined ASHI to be able to get a loan for a business capital. After loaning several times in ASHI, she had proven her pledge that as a member, she will try her best to use her loan in her business and that she will be able to repay on time. Now, Alesandra requests for a much bigger amount of loan for financing her livelihood activity that turned into a business for the past years. After four months of raising her pigs, she sells them in the market and she profits as much double of the amount of her capital. With large amount of capital, she can purchase more pigs to raise and sell thus making her profit more every four months.

With the profits she will be having in her business, Alesandra wanted to send all of her children to school until they graduate from college to be able to bring themselves out of poverty in the future.
