Leslie's story

Leslie hails from Dumanjug town. She runs a sari-sari (variety) store and sells basic commodities like noodles, milk, sugar, seasonings, soap, shampoo and assorted canned goods. She has one grown child.

Her sari-sari store is situated near her home and serves customers, mostly neighbors and nearby residents. She would like to boost the inventory in her shop. That is why she has requested a loan to buy supplies like soft drinks, canned goods, edible oil, and toiletries.

Leslie is hopeful that, through this loan, her existing project will continue to prosper.
