A loan helped to buy stock for her store like soft drinks, toiletries, noodles, canned goods, food seasonings, candies, drinks, etc., and to have additional capital for her rice retailing business.


Leila's story

Leila is a resident of San Dionisio, Iloilo. She is 62 years old and a widow. To earn an income, she runs a sari-sari (variety) store, selling basic commodities. She has been in this business for many years. Aside from this, she also has a rice retailing business for additional income.

Now, she asks for a loan. She will use this loan to buy additional stock for her store like soft drinks, toiletries, noodles, canned goods, food seasonings, candies, drinks, snack food and other basic commodities. Another part of this loan will be used for additional capital for her rice retailing business.

Furthermore, Leila dreams to be successful in the future.
