A loan of $700 helped to buy glutinous rice, sugar, wrappers, and some other ingredients for her business.


Jovita's story

Jovita is motivated to work hard by her favorite saying: try and fail, but don’t fail to try. Jovita is 58 years old, married, and blessed with one child. Her husband is a farmer working in the Philippines. Jovita runs a sari-sari (variety) store business.

With her desire to earn a higher income and have a better quality of life, Jovita started another business, which is cooking glutinous rice to sell in the market. She is happy that she has kept this business going for 23 years now.

Jovita wants to earn more income to save for her family in case of future emergencies. She wishes that she could sell more glutinous rice in the market, but she doesn’t have enough capital to make her wish a reality. Hence, she is asking for a loan of PHP 30,000 to buy glutinous rice, sugar, wrappers, and some other ingredients for her business.
