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

A loan helped to invest in stock for the store like rice, soft drinks and toiletries.

Lourdes's story

Lourdes hails from the town of Baclayon. She runs a sari-sari (variety) store, selling various commodities such as noodles, canned goods, soft drinks, sugar, eggs, soap and beverages.

She is a 37-year-old married woman and has five children. Her eldest is child 12, while the youngest is 3. Her husband has a job that could help defray the family's daily needs.

She is asking for a loan to invest in stock for the store, like rice, soft drinks and toiletries. These will keep her store full of stock and could attract more buyers to come.

Thus, her earnings will start to improve and enable her to provide her family with a nutritious diet and continue to send her children to school. With these, she could start to save and be able to do some expansion.

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