Marivonne's story

This is Marivonne Lamberte, 38, resident of Caloocan City, Philippines.

A dream for most Filipino parents like Marivonne, as she herself has been a college undergraduate and believes that a college diploma is the best inheritance parents could leave to their children. Marivonne operates a retail business. What she basically does is buy general merchandise from wholesalers then sells them piecemeal with a little profit.

Customers are attracted to buy due to the low selling prices and the many options they are offered. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community.
