A loan helped to purchase more sausage and hot dogs to sell.


Gerlie An's story

Gerlie An is married to a farmer. She has one child who attends school. Her family's main source of income is farming; they plant rice crops on their farm.

Gerlie An has owned and operated a food vending business in her village, particularly selling frozen foods such as sausage and hot dogs. She offers her products through cash on delivery or by allowing one week to pay. Gerlie An has been in this business for almost two years and earns a net income of 3,000 PHP weekly. She is happy because through her earnings she is able to cover her family's daily basic needs at home.

Due to insufficient capital in her business, Gerlie An would like a loan of 20,000 PHP to purchase more sausage and hot dogs to sell. She's hoping that her business will continue to improve and become more profitable.
