Josephine's story

Josephine is from the town of Duero, Bohol. She is 35 years old and operates a sari-sari (variety) store in her community, which she has been doing for eight years. Josephine sells basic household products such as detergent, seasonings, toiletries, chips, canned goods, and soft drinks. With her profits, she is able to pay school fees for her two children.

Josephine is requesting a loan to expand her business and also start a new venture of raising hogs. She will use the loan to buy piglets and merchandise to sell such as coffee, sugar, toiletries, canned goods, noodles, insect repellent, and rice. These items are in high demand and sell very well on a daily basis.

With this loan, Josephine is confident that her sari-sari store will become more prosperous. She will use her profits to pay school fees for her children and provide healthy meals for her family.
