A loan of $300 helped to purchase more cosmetics, shoes and bags and build a perimeter fence.


Dionesia's story

Dionesia A., 38, lives in Phase 4, Bagong Silang, Caloocan City. Her husband died seven years ago. She has three children. The eldest has just finished college and is now helping her send the two younger kids to school.

Dionesia, like many Filipina women entrepreneurs, sells cosmetics, shoes, and bags consigned from prominent brands to clients on installment terms. She earns P2,500.00 every week from this business, augmenting her regular salary as a storekeeper at a nearby water refilling station. Working at the water refilling station also provides an opportunity to market her products (see picture of Dionesia inside the water station with her products).

While most of the loan she has applied for will be used for inventory for her business, Dionesia will use part of the P14,000 loan to construct a perimeter fence around a parcel of land she purchased with her savings.
