Urcisina's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy more supplies of tuba (coconut wine) and tungog (a kind of mangrove bark used in flavoring coconut wine).
Urcisina engages in the tuba (coconut wine) vending business. She sells tuba to the locals in her place. She has been engaged in tuba vending for more than 10 years. She is a 65-year-old woman from Loon, Bohol. She has five grown children. Urcisina has requested a loan in the amount of 15,000 PHP to buy more supplies of tuba and tungog (a kind of mangrove bark used in flavoring coconut wine). Thus, this will help improve her stock and be able to cater to her customers when the demand goes up. Thus, she could now set aside some savings and start to expand her existing business. In the future, she dreams of opening a sari-sari (variety) store for sustainable living.
