Angelita's story

Angelita is 57 years old and has eight children.She lives in Binmaley, Pangasinan with her family. To earn a living, Angelita has sold grocery items in her village for 23 years.

She hopes to increase her merchandise but she does not have enough capital to re-stock her store especially when her husband passed away. She needs to work hard for the daily expenses of the family.

Angelita is requesting a loan worth PHP 15,000 to buy merchandise such as canned goods, biscuits, soap and shampoo to sell. She will keep offering good products and services to people. In the future, Angelita plans to construct a bigger store to expand and generate more income from her business as their main source of income.
