Rosario's story

Rosario has been operating a small store in front of her house at Amulung. She is 49 years old, married and has four children. Two of them still attend school and are supported by Rosario. She is married to Celestino, a farmer in their village. They work untiringly to provide sustenance for the family.

Rosario would like to improve her small store and stock more merchandise to sell and able to increase her earnings too. She is now borrowing a loan of 40,000 PHP to buy canned goods, soft drinks, eggs, biscuits, soap, and shampoo to sell to her customers. Another part of the loan will be used for her spouse's farming business: she will buy fertilizers for the rice crop.

With good profits from their businesses, Rosario hopes to achieve a prosperous life for her family.
