Eudisa B. is 58 years old and proud of the record she and her husband have achieved of growing their fishing business and repaying their loans on time. In order to continue this growth and increase her income, Eudisa has applied for a new loan through ASHI. She will use the loan to catch additional fish to sell in a local wholesale market. Though Eudisa’s small company does not make a lot of money, she takes satisfaction in the fact that she and her husband support their family without help from others. Because of their hard work, one of their children is in college, and she hopes to be able to persuade another, who is 18, to do the same thing.

About ASHI

Ahon Sa Hirap, Inc. has the distinction of being the oldest existing replication of Grameen methodology for delivering credit to the poor in the Philippines. With more than a third of the nation’s 90 million Filipinos living below the poverty line, ASHI was established with the vision of helping to alleviate poverty in the Philippines. Translated from Tagalog, Ahon Sa Hirap means “to rise above poverty.”

Empowering women dedicated to supporting their families through hard work and dedication, ASHI lends 100% to women and specifically the bottom 50%, so the “poorest of the poor.” In addition to general business loans, ASHI also offers educational loans, house repair loans, savings funds, and social development programs for its members.
