Fernando's story

This is Fernando, 42, a resident of Silang, Cavite, Philippines. He is married to Cherry Ann, a vendor, and is father to his children. He, together with his wife, manages their own household while operating the business. At this time, he is working hard to continually provide income for his everyday expenses.

His regular customers are his neighbors and people in the local community. He earns a minimum of PHP 500 in sales every day. To help him continue the operations of his business, Fernando is requesting a PHP 50, 000 loan. He will be utilizing the loan to buy more quantities of coconut to expand his product inventory. He expects a boost in his business income as he expands his business. Fernando dreams to grow his business in the coming years.
