Elena's story

For a hospitable woman like Elena C., gaining a lot of customers for their blacksmith business isn’t hard. It is meeting their increasing demands and the need to expand plus the increasing financial needs of her family that worries her.

For this reason, Elena and her husband decided to request a much larger loan through ASHI. Once their blacksmith shop becomes stable, in addition to her hog-breeding business, Elena believes that they will also be able to sustain the education of their children who are in college and will improve their standard of living.
