Analyn is 42 years old, married, and has three chidren. She is a resident of GMA, Cavite, Philippines. Her husband is a heavy equipment operator. She, together with her husband, manages their household while operating her business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.
Analyn operates an accessories retail business. She buys accessory items from wholesalers and sells them per piece/pack for a profit. Customers are attracted to buy due to the low selling prices and the many options she offered. Her regular customers are students and mall patrons. She earns a minimum of 500 PHP in sales every day.
To help her continue operations of her business, Analyn is requesting a loan for 20,000 PHP, which she will use to buy different products such as toys, pony tail holders, and different gift items. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.
Analyn hopes to expand her business. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week and where she can also draw strength and inspiration from God.
