Myrna's story

This is Myrna, 46, a resident of Manila and the mother of two children. Together with her children she manages the household while operating her business. She continually works hard to provide for their everyday expenses.

Myrna operates a sari-sari adjacent to her house. In the Philippines a sari-sari is basically a small convenience store that retails groceries, toiletries and beverages piecemeal to the local neighborhood. It is the place to go to buy one sachet of shampoo, 5 PHP’s worth of cooking oil or an egg.

Myrna profits by getting supplies at wholesale prices and selling them by the piece. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 500 PHP in sales every day.

Myrna is requesting a 10,000 PHP loan. She will be using it to buy groceries, toiletries and beverages to expand her inventory, which she expects will boost her business.

Myrna dreams of being able to give her family a good future through all of her hard work. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship members* to share stories of her work every week and study the Word of God from which she draws strength and inspiration.
