A loan helped to buy stocks of groceries and beverages to sell.

Margie's story

Margie is 39 years old, and is happily married to a farmer. She wisely spends their money in order to save more for the future of her kid. For now, her priority is to make greater income for the education of her kid soon.

Margie’s husband cultivates a rice farm. Since income from farming comes only every four to five months, she decided to run a business that enables her to make daily income. Now, Margie runs a sari-sari store business in her village. She has been running the business for three years.

Margie wishes to sell more grocery items, which will enable her to increase her income, but her capital is limited. In this connection, she is requesting a loan of P50,000 to buy stocks of groceries and beverages to sell. She is hoping to earn enough for the future of her kid.
