A loan helped to buy more frozen food to sell.

Philomina's story

Philomina, 41, is married and has three children, ages 4 through 17, three of whom attend school and live at home. She went to school through college and earns her living by selling various frozen foods. She has run this business for one year.

Philomina learned her trade from her husband and started her business after receiving money from her husband. Through her hard work, she has been able to send her children to school. Philomina enjoys it when people buy her goods and describes herself as a hardworking businesswoman.

Philomina hopes to use her loan to buy more frozen food and expand her business. In the future, she hopes to continue sending her children to school and build her own house. She wishes to say thank you very much to all of the people lending her money.
