Lourdes's story

A 57-year-old Lourdes T. is a quiet type of person yet a very responsible wife, mother, and business woman. Despite her many insecurities brought about by poverty, she remained strong and determined in changing her family’s way of living. Even though she failed to achieve her dream of graduating her two eldest children from college, she doesn’t see it as a reason not to dream anymore. As a matter of fact, she joined ASHI just recently requesting for a loan wanting to start up a “sari-sari” (variety store) business which will be managed by her to support her youngest the education in college of daughter whose age is 20 years. The said store will be located in her own house and her customers will be people around their small village. Her husband who is a farmer understood where Lourdes’s aspiration of having her own business came from. Being a farm laborer, income is sporadic and very small. Therefore, he is giving all his support to Lourdes and like Lourdes, he wishes that the business will become successful.
