A loan of $375 helped to buy additional stock of slippers and shoes to sell.


Imelda's story

Due to a lack of job opportunities, Imelda buys and sells footwear in a market to generate additional income. She is now 40 years old and has three school-age children. She plans to continue sending her children to school so that they will gain degrees and become professionals someday. She also plans to acquire more footwear to sell but she does not have enough capital. Thus, she wants to ask for a loan of P15,000 to buy additional stock of slippers and shoes. She is hoping that she will improve her business and make it a viable source of income in the future.
