Asuncion's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to buy several kilos of pork, beef and chicken meat as well as fish to offer to her customers.


Asuncion's story

Asuncion has been selling vegetables, fruits and other fresh products for years now. She has kept this business to help her family with their day-to-day expenses. Living in a community densely populated, Asuncion never lacked for buyers. They however have been asking her to also offer meat products, which she cannot provide today due to the lack of capital.

She is requesting a loan of PhP 7,000 to buy several kilos of pork, beef and chicken meat as well as fish to offer to her customers. Asuncion hopes that by covering almost all fresh goods that are commonly bought for home cooking, she would be able to reach out to more customers.
