Antonieta M. of Sebaste, Antique has been an active member of ASHI(Ahon Sa Hirap, Inc.) for one year. She has five children, four have graduated college and presently all are employed. One of her children still lives at home. She joined ASHI not only for loans but for pleasure since every week the group meets at their center meeting. She wants to be involved in the community in order to get out of the house and not be bored. She applied for a loan to buy pigs and raise capital for fish vending. She wants to venture in this business to save money for an operation on her chin. She hopes that in the future she could have a sewing machine to practice her sewing ability, and dreams to have a beautiful house.

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.
