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


A loan helped to buy an additional supply of goods such as biscuits, noodles, sugar, coffee and many other things to resell at her store.


Floresca's story

Floresca is a modest, single, 41-year-old mother. She has a very good understanding of and experience with her general store. She has one of her own, which has been running for many years, and her store is located in an excellent spot which is easy to find. Many people always come to buy her goods every day. Running her business has made Floresca become more independent because she can be responsible for herself and also help support her family's everyday income.

She would like to request a loan of PHP 30,000 to help improve her store. She plans to use this loan to buy an additional supply of goods such as biscuits, noodles, sugar, coffee and many other things to resell at her store.

Floresca hopes to expand the size of her business in the future as a result of her investment and wants to thank lenders for the opportunity.
