Ma. Luz's story

Ma. Luz R. wishes to have good health conditions to be able to serve her husband, her four children, aged from 6 to 19 years old, and her business customers.

Ma. Luz makes and sells nipa (palm tree leaf) shingles (one of the most common roofing materials used by people in the Province of Antique). She also has a manicure and pedicure business.

Her husband is a farmer and they both aim to send all of their children to college to experience a different kind of life – a life not being poor. Ma. Luz uses the proceeds from her businesses to augment her husband’s income and to support the needs of their children until they have reached their dreams.

With the loan she requests now, she hopes to grow her business and her profits. Without the loan, her dreams would be nothing and her children would still have the same kind of life in the future since Ma. Luz finds that ASHI is the only MFI that lends money with the interest she is capable of paying.
