A loan helped to buy more shoes to sell.


Josephine's story

‘Ukay-ukay’ is big business in the Philippines. This refers to a market where slightly used branded things are sold. Sometimes, since they come in the form of bulk, ‘ukay’ means an action that refers to digging deeper into many things just to look for your final choice of an item.

Josephine has a thriving business of ‘ukay-ukay’ shoes. In Alicia, which is a town far from the city, this is the people's favourite. She is asking for a loan to buy more stocks of shoes that she can sell at an affordable price.

Josephine's income will be mainly for her three teenage dependents. Her hope is for them to finish school for a brighter future.
