Epifania's story

This is Epifania, 62, a resident of Manila, Philippines. She is single and manages her own household while operating her business. At this time, she is working hard to support her everyday needs.

Epifania operates an internet café. There is more need, more now than before, for services like these as customers’ demand increases. Her main patrons are students, who require her services for school requirements. She also has people who need to rent computers for business purposes, like writing resumes or office documentation. There are also people who would just love to surf the 'net and any social networks. She earns a minimum of PHP 500 in profit every day.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a PHP 20,000 loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy additional computer parts and accessories needed in her business. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Epifania dreams of having good health so she can continue managing her business. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week.
