Magdalena's story

This is Magdalena N., 60, resident of Pasay City, Philippines. She is married to Pacifico N. and mother to three young hard working adults. By the grace of God, Magdalena has managed to support her children's schooling up to college level. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their every day expenses. Magdalena operates a variety store. In the Philippines, a variety store is basically a small convenience store, which retails groceries, toiletries and beverages piecemeal to the local neighborhood. It is the place to go for to buy one sachet of shampoo, a Php5-worth of cooking oil, or an egg. She earns by getting supplies at wholesale prices and sells at retail rates. Her store is located adjacent to her house. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of Php250 in sales every day. To help her continue operation of her business, she is requesting a Php29,000 loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy more quantities of products like groceries, toiletries, and beverages to expand her product inventory.
