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

A loan helped to buy groceries and drinks to sell at her store.

Susana's story

Susana is a 60-year-old woman from the town of Argao. She is married and has six grown children. Susana runs a sari-sari (variety) store where she sells basic commodities such as cooking oil, noodles, canned goods, toiletries, and beverages. Her husband works as a farmer.

At the moment, Susana has limited funds, which prevents her from boosting the inventory in her shop. Therefore, she decided to request a loan to buy groceries and drinks. The income that results from this investment will be put back into the business and set aside as savings.
