From chickens to cows – dreams are coming true

The Honor 1000 project is changing the future for Filipino women. From owning just a few chickens in 2001 to now owning cows, one mother is determined to succeed in providing for her 5 children. She now dreams of adding hog raising to her business and is grateful for the opportunity to grow her dreams of becoming self-sustainable.

Honor 1000 and their amazing team, support in excess of 2,000 clients – all women – every week. Stretching across four regions of the Philippines, 129 groups meet weekly as individual cooperatives, along with an Honor 1000 loans officer, working together to progress their businesses. It’s a fantastic model filled with success stories of women, (mostly single moms) being able to keep their kids in school, provide nutritious food on the table, and live safely in comfortable homes.
