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

A loan helped to buy inventory for her store and be able to do business as before.

Rowena's story

Rowena is widowed. Two of her three children are working while the youngest is still studying. Rowena has maintained her store for the last 9 years to support her youngest. Her income from her store and the contributions from her children has generally been enough to cover their expenses. However, Rowena's sister who is based in another province got sick and needed financial help. Rowena had no quick option but to send some money coming from her store's capital.

Since then, Rowena has found it hard to regain her capital and replenish missing stocks. She is requesting a loan of PHP 15,000 to buy sacks of rice, milk, instant coffee and canned goods to regain her inventories and be able to do business as before. Rowena is hopeful that the loan can help her get her business on back on track.
