Alona Mae's story

Alona Mae is a 30-year-old woman who lives in Baybay, Leyte, with her family. She is a mother of three children, ages 8 years, 3 years, and 2 months old. Three years ago, Alona Mae successfully started a rice retailing business to help her husband sustain their every day lives. Her husband supports them through driving a tricycle (a motorcycle with a covered sidecar that seats anywhere from one passenger to as many as the driver will allow).

In the future, Alona Mae dreams to have other business opportunities that will help her family improve their livelihood. As for now, she is requesting a loan to buy harvested rice from the farmers. This harvested rice will be sold to merchants. In this way, she and her husband could possibly improve their earnings.
