Josefina's story

Josefina is a responsible housewife who planned to have a stable source of income to give her children a bright future. She is 51 and has five adult children. She has owned and managed a variety store in her community for almost three years, earning a profit of 10,000 Philippine pesos (PHP) per month that she has utilized for her family's daily consumption and for the expenses of their children in school. Despite calamities and competitors in the area, she can still make her business profitable.

She aimed to increase her product offerings to meet her customers demand, but due to inadequate capital, she is asking for a loan of 50,000 PHP to buy additional stocks of soft drinks, junk foods, beverages, seasonings, noodles, canned goods and soaps to sell in her variety store. She mentioned that she will make more improvements in her business through this loan and hopes that her patience and sacrifices will lead her to reach her goals in the future.
