A loan of $300 helped buy new clothes to sell for her "ukay ukay" business.


Ederlina's story

At 53, Ederlina is a widowed woman. Her husband died three years ago from blood cancer. She keeps striving in her business to support herself and her son. She sold fruits and vegetables for a living until she suffered a stroke a year ago. Her son was forced to stop his education to maintain her medication. After recovering from sickness, Ederlina ventured into a new type of business: selling clothing. She now manages "ukay-ukay" that is selling branded used clothes and bags from Canada. Her son helps her in the business so she just stays at home and sometimes looks out for customers to buy her products. To further grow her business, she is requesting a loan of 12,000 Philippine Pesos (PHP) to buy new clothes to sell. She wants to attract more customers and make progress towards the increased income she needs to sustain the business for their daily needs.
