A loan of $375 helped to expand her vending business.

Marilou's story

Marilou Macasaddu is 46 years old. Her family lives in the rural village of Gadu Solana, Cagayan. She is married to Edmundo Macasaddu, who is a local farmer in their village. They are blessed with a happy family and hope to provide all their four children with a better education someday.

Marilou manages a vending business where she sells different vegetables, street foods, and canned goods from her vending stall just in front of their house. The business has been in operation for 20 years and she is proud that her long-term business venture has helped her family significantly.

She works hard to help her husband. She gets up in the early morning to prepare her store and goes to the market to buy products in bulk. She has gained a lot of clients and is earning a better profit. But Marilou still needs to save for the college education of her four children, and thus she feels the need to increase her daily income. She would like to take out a loan amounting to PHP 17,000. She hopes to further develop her business into a mini-grocery store someday.

Marilou believes that by working hard and having patience, she will maintain her business, which will enable her to achieve all her goals in life.
