A loan of $250 helped to buy new items to sell in her sari-sari store.

Agripina's story

Even before Agripina J. became a member of ASHI in 2008, she realized that she needed to have her own small business despite her age (73 years old) so that she could help her six children support her many grandchildren. With this goal in mind, she established a small “sari-sari” (or variety) store in which she sells various types of food, beverages, and other basic commodities. She also has able to buy a piglet which she will raise and sell in four months. These businesses are possible because of Agripina’s membership in ASHI and the help she has been receiving. Her husband’s small pension would not have allowed her to help her family, but the small revenue her businesses makes allows her to provide this support.

Agripina is happy to provide this help, gets a good deal of satisfaction from managing her own store, and hopes to increase the number of items she has to sell so that she can gain more costumers and more revenues. To reach this goal, she has applied to ASHI for a new loan to grown her business and and help it bring greater happiness to the entire family.
