A loan of $450 helped to support the growth of her sari-sari store.


Darlyn Joy's story

Darlyn Joy would like to request a larger loan for the sustainability and growth of her venture: a sari-sari (variety) store.

Sari-sari stores basically sell small quantities of various foodstuffs, grocery items and beverages. “Sari” is a native word for variety. This is a small store that is either attached to the owner’s house or in a small native cottage not far away from the owner’s house. Such stores are convenient for people in the village who live far from the market town.

Darlyn is determined to improve her business as well as the life of her family. Knowing that she can access financial support through loans has given her courage and faith that someday she will move away from the cycle of being poor.

Darlyn’s business has been very helpful in achieving her dreams. Her greatest hope is that her family will be complete if they have a baby someday. Her longterm goals are to have a full-fledged mini-grocery store and a happy family as well.
