A loan of $600 helps to purchase bananas to sell.


Fredisminda's story

Fredisminda is aged 51, widowed, and a mother of three children. She has sold bananas in their village for almost 30 years and earns a net income of PHP 6,000 weekly.

Her net income from this business is spent on their daily expenses at home.

Due to inadequate capital for her business, she would like to avail a loan amounting to PHP 30,000 to purchase bananas to sell.

She's hoping that her business will continue to grow productively.
