Adelfa's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy more rice to sell.
Adelfa is a 55-year-old woman from Candijay, Bohol. Together with her husband, they are engaged in buying and selling rice. In addition to that, she also sells taho, a drink made from soya and tapioca. She is asking for a loan in order to buy rice stocks from farmers. A loan will allow her to buy quickly when the demand is high. Adelfa is excited that through loans, small businesses like herself have been sustained during this difficult time. Her income from the business will allow her to have nutritious meals daily, savings and further reinvestment in retail.
