A loan of $325 helped to purchase junk and scrap materials for her junk shop business.


Leonida's story

Leonida P. lives in Buenavista, Pagadian City, Zamboanga Del Sur. She is 53 years old and married. Her husband works as a jail guard. Mrs. Leonida applied for the loan of PHP 14,000 to purchase junk and other scrap materials. One of the richest men in the Philippines started like her, collecting and purchasing junk (used bottles and cans) and other scrap materials (like old newspapers and magazines)from different households and offices and sell these in waste recycling businesses; now he owns prime real properties in the Philippines, Taiwan and Hongkong. His story is always an inspiration for Leonida. The income she generates from her business helps their daily expenses and paying the tuition fees of her children. She plans to have sari-sari store aside from her junk shop.
