Myrna's story

Myrna G. is from the village of Bitag Pequeño, Baggao, Cagayan. She is 40 years old. Myrna is married and has 2 school-aged children. To make a living, Myrna owns and operates a business venture in the retail sector, running a general store. While not the only means for generating revenue, the main source of income for the business comes primarily from selling daily use products such as shampoo, soap and toothpaste in the local community. Myrna has been engaged in her business for over 10 years and earns approximately 2500 PHP a month for these activities.

In 2009, Myrna joined ASKI to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Myrna has successfully repaid a previous loan of 5000 PHP from ASKI. Myrna is requesting a new loan of 7000 PHP which will be used to purchase additional products to sell. This loan will be the second loan taken out by Myrna from ASKI. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve and expand her business.
