Catherine's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy various stocks for her store like noodles, canned goods, beverages, toiletries, and hog feed.

Catherine's story

Thirty-nine-year-old Catherine manages a sari-sari (variety) store. She sells basic commodities including powdered milk, seasonings, canned goods, shampoo, toothpaste, candies, biscuits, and liquor. She is married and has three children aged 13, 14 and 16 years old respectively. Her husband works as a driver.

In addition, she also raises hogs for supplemental income.

This time, she needs sufficient funds to boost her livelihood. That is why she decided to avail a loan that was used to buy various stocks for the store like noodles, canned goods, beverages, toiletries and hog feed. In this way, she will be able to improve its supplies and also raise quality hogs as well.

Catherine is hoping that someday she will become a successful entrepreneur and be able to support the needs of her children as well.
