Yolanda V., at 70, earns her own living. Her husband died 4 years ago, leaving her with 8 children, of whom 7 now have families of their own. Her youngest is currently working as an oversees contract worker. As a parent, she knew too well the burden of managing the family's daily expenses against the family's income. So to help her extended family, she had to find ways to earn. Through her small vegetable garden and a variety store, Yolanda was able to cope with her personal expenses and give a portion to her children. She is now applying for her eighth loan from HSPFI amounting to PHP 15,000.00 for additional capital for her current business.
