Jamebie's story

Jamebie A. is from the village of Poblacion, Dangcagan, Bukidnon. She is 28 years old. Jamebie is married and has two school-aged children. To make a living, Jamebie owns and operates a food stall. While not the only means for generating revenue, the main source of income for the business comes primarily from serving and selling breads with coffee, chocolate drinks and teas in the local community. Jamebie has been engaged in her business for over four years and earns approximately 10000 PHP a month for these activities.

In 2010, Jamebie joined HSPFI to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Jamebie is requesting a new loan of 5000 PHP, which will be used to purchase additional products to sell. This loan will be the first loan taken out by Jamebie from HSPFI. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve and expand her business.
