Remedios owns and operates a business buying and selling chickens in the local community. She has been engaged in her business for over five years and earns approximately 2,000 PHP a week.

She has successfully repaid a previous loan from ASHI.

Remedios is requesting a new loan of 19,000 PHP which will be used to invest in expanding her business. This loan will be her fourth from ASHI. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve her family's general living conditions. Having this loan will provide a chance to reach her dreams in life: to have a growing business, a good life and the financial means to support her family and fund her grandchildren's college education.
