A loan of $425 helped to purchase a piglet for fattening and a large volume of rice to sell.


Dilaluz's story

Dilaluz D., aged 65, wants to grow the small hog fattening and rice retail businesses that she has set up using the loans she has accessed through ASHI. Proceeds from these businesses are the only source of income for her family for all their needs including her medication. In addition to her 67-year-old jobless husband, Dilaluz is also supporting her children aged 31 and 33. However, one of her children is her partner in running her business.

Despite being poor in health and financially, Dilaluz still feels happy that she has had the opportunity to receive a loan and to have a business of her own. She enjoys using its profit to support her family's needs. Some day she hopes that her business will grow so her children can take it over.
