Adelaida's story

Adelaida S. is a 55-year-old hardworking and ever supportive mother for her five children who range in age from 11 to 24 years old and her husband who is a farmer. Having been living under the umbrella of poverty since birth until she has her own family, Adelaida believed that her patience and industry in running a business through the opportunity to access credit will change the lives of her children. Therefore, in 2009 Adelaida joined ASHI and used the loan she had received to raise hog/pig. After four months of raising or fattening, pig will be sold either alive or slaughtered for its meat to be sold per kilo. Out of her loan then, she was able also to support her husband’s fishing business. The thought of her five children especially those three who were elementary and high school undergraduate in addition to her youngest two who were still studying in elementary and high school, gives her courage to request for a larger amount of loan and be willing to take risk in growing a business. Adelaida said that without her loan, supporting the financial requirement of her business to expand and increase the profit would be impossible. For her this means that her dream for her children to graduate from college and for their lives to be changed would mean nothing.
