Erlinda's story

Erlinda is a devoted wife. She expresses her commitment and full devotion to her business and to her family as well. Erlinda has operated a small sari-sari (variety) store and raised hogs for almost seven years. The profits earned from her businesses allow her to pay school fees and allowances for her children. She has three children, all of whom are married and live separately from her.
Erlinda wants to strengthen her business but has an inadequate fund, so she is asking for a loan of 50,000 PHP to buy soap, shampoo, canned goods, soft drinks, vinegar, and other basic kitchen needs. She wants to stock more items in her store to meet all her customers' requests. The rest of her loan will be used to sustain her hogs.
In the future, Erlinda aims to have a large store and improve her hog-raising business to earn a higher revenue. She wants to achieve financial independence.
