A loan of $275 helped to buy skin of pork and cow for making chicharon for her business.

Jovie's story

Jovie is engaged in vending chicharon (fried pork skin) in her village. She is requesting a loan of PHP11,000 to be able to have additional capital to increase her daily income. She has been in the business for 23 years and she hopes that it will become better so that her income will increase.

Through the aid of a motorcycle, she is able to deliver her chicharon to some stores in their village and sometimes to nearby villages. According to Jovie, she has to perform her obligation as a good mother to her children by providing them with support for their education so that they have the opportunity for a better future.

Jovie is 35 years old and is married to Jofel . They are living in Barangay San Manuel province of Isabela, and they are blessed with four children. Through the help of her brother-in-law, they were able to start their business. She hopes that someday, with the help of the loan, the business will expand and will help increase her family’s standard of living.
