Sylvia's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy additional stock to sell, such as rice, soft drinks, canned goods, cooking oil, other seasonings, chips, snack foods, soap, and toiletries.
Sylvia is a 57-year-old, married woman and a mother of four grown up children. She is from CPG, Bohol, Philippines. Sylvia has generated income by running a sari-sari, or variety store, for more than 10 years. Sylvia hopes to expand her business but lacks the capital to do so. She is asking for a loan to buy additional stock to sell, such as rice, soft drinks, canned goods, cooking oil, seasonings, chips, snack foods, soap and toiletries. With this additional stock she will be able to cater to more buyers in her store.
