In 2008, Lucy joined HSPFI to gain much-needed access to financial services. As a result, she was better able to engage in business activities and to thereby improve her family's standard of living. Recently, Lucy successfully repaid a loan in the amount of 15,000 PHP from HSPFI. This previous loan was used to to purchase additional inventory and for working capital purposes. Lucy is now requesting a new loan, this time in the amount of 20,000 PHP ($475), which will be used to purchase additional products like canned goods, junk food, and beverages. Notably, this loan would be the sixth loan taken out by Lucy from HSPFI. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business as a result of the loan to improve and expand her business.
