A loan helped to invest in materials like bamboo.

Susana's story

Susana is a 50-year-old, married woman with two children from Sagbayan town. She has been engaged in weaving "amakan" (a type of traditional woven split-bamboo mats used as walls, paneling or wall cladding). Her husband also helps her in handling the same project, to support their family.

At this time, she is asking for a loan to boost capital. That is why she has decided to avail herself of a loan to invest in materials like bamboo.

Susana hopes to improve her business so that it will generate more income to sustain the needs of the family and pay for the schooling of her children. Any additional income will be used for reinvestment in the same business and for savings.
