Kareen's story

Kareen is a 28-year-old variety store owner from the mountainous town of San Martin, Maddela, Quirino. She enjoys managing the business with which she earns daily income that she uses to fulfill their daily basic needs at home.

Kareen is happily living with her live-in partner with their one child.

To lessen their travel expenses, Kareen needs to purchase more stocks for her general store, because their community is far from the market. With this in mind, she would like to request a loan of 15,000 PHP to buy candies, canned goods, coffee, beverages, spices, noodles, and biscuits to sell.

Kareen is hoping for continued growth of her business.
