Letecia is a food vendor from the town of Panglao, Bohol. She is a married woman and has two grown-up children. Her husband works as a carpenter.
Letecia sells home-cooked snack foods and drinks to the people in her place. As of now, she dreams of expanding her business but lacks the capital to do so. With this, she joined CEVI to gain access to the loan services offered by the organization to microentrepreneurs like her.
Letecia is asking for a loan to buy additional ingredients for food vending like flour, sugar, milk, baking powder, cooking oil and others. With a loan, she will be able to cook and sell more, thus, augmenting her sales and income. In the future, Letecia hopes to make her business a success.
