Sandra's story

Sandra is a married woman. She is a mother of six children that are still dependent. Her oldest child is 19 years old while her youngest child is 10 years old. Her husband provides for them by driving a “habal-habal” (visayan term for motorcycle with extended seat to accommodate more passengers). To help her husband improve his livelihood, Sandra started her own business. She does “buri” (the largest palm in Philippines) weaving and makes mats. She has been doing this for 11 years. Thus, she is asking for a loan to buy “buri” leaves. Early this year, she successfully started other business opportunities like running a sari-sari store. She will also use the money to buy assorted stock for her store. Additionally, Sandra is very determined woman. She wants to improve her business and have a sustainable means of living in the future.
