A loan of $125 helped to purchase piglets to raise and sell.

Consolacion's story

Consolacion A. is a typical wife who wants to help her husband earn money to improve the lives of their six children, whose ages range from one to 16 years. Her husband is a small-time laborer who earns just a small about of income.

With her husband’s income alone, Consolacion’s dream of giving their children a better life is impossible. Therefore, together with her supportive family, she joined ASHI just recently so that she can request a loan which she will use to start up a small business raising pigs.

The nature of this business is that either you will slaughter the hog or you will sell it live after four months fattening. The larger the volume of hogs sold, the greater the profit. However, starting up with a small amount of capital, Consolacion would still be happy to see her small profit responding to her family’s basic needs.

With ASHI and its partner Kiva, Consolacion believes that someday her small business will grow and its profit will sustain the education of her children until they graduate from college.
