Everson's story

Everson is 29 years old, married, and has a dependent child. He lives in his relative's house along with his child and wife, in the community of San Antonio. His wife is a teacher, and also works to provide more support to his family.

Everson has a grocery store/pharmacy, where he sells products including beans, rice, butter, corn, and general grocery items. He also sells popular medicines such as Panadol (acetaminophen), alka seltzer, ibuprofen, saline solution, bandages, rubbing alcohol, cotton, vitamins and other products.

He is requesting his second loan, for a duration of 4 months, to purchase staple grains and medicines to stock his store. This way he will have better earnings and can capture more customers, making his business stronger day by day.

Among Everson's plans is the idea of establishing a new branch of his business in the town center, and also buying some land where he could build his own house.
