Betty's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy flour & ingredients for "torta" making.
“Torta” (a native cupcake made of flour and baked through “pugon”) is a delicious and famous delicacy of Misamisnon. Mrs. Betty C., who is 55 years old, married and lives at Panaon, Misamis Occidental, bakes these at home. She started making “Torta” while she was still in her 30’s. She sells them to the public market, carenderia, canteens & community stores. The “torta” sales are a great help to her family especially in raising her 3 children. Betty started the business with an initial capital of PHP 500. Her husband is a tricycle driver. In preparation for her daughter’s education for college, she would like to earn more, so she wants to expand her business. So, she asks for a loan of PHP 30,000 as additional capital for their business expansion.
