Mrs. Evelyn A., 33, is married to Mr. Henry A.. They are blessed with 3 children and reside in Brgy. San Francisco, Tibiao, Antique Philippines. Currently they are living with her parents-in-law due to insufficient funds to build their own house.

Like others, Evelyn had terrible experiences earlier about completing her studies; she worked just to support her brother and sister, since she is the eldest in the family. Since she has had a family of her own, she is still suffering from the different facets of poverty, especially financial problems. Thanks to her industry and courage in facing those trials, she started up a variety store as one of her sources of income to cope up with the basic needs of her family.

One of her greatest dreams is to send her children to school and have them finish their studies. She also dreams of a stable business and even of having the working capital to become a wholesaler of rice and a retailer as well. With these dreams she needs a capital of Php 10,000 for her next loan through ASHI. Giving a chance to have a starting capital of Php 5,000 she aims to do her best to maintain her good performance in ASHI, since this is an opportunity, according to her.
