Sara Petrona's story

Mrs. Sara Petrona C. is 34 years old, married with three young children still in school. Mrs. C. has a small convenience store situated in her home. She started up this business 3 years ago by selling firewood, food and beans to her neighbors. However, with time, she succeeded in establishing the convenience store. Generally her purchases are made from her house, as that is where the majority of venders come to sell her the type of items she offers. Fruit and vegetables are the only things she has to go and get at the market. Her loan will be used to buy a bigger quantity and variety of merchandise. Her dream is to own a large convenience store, the kind which sells all kinds of goods and that could offer greater revenue for her family.
