Mercedes's story

Mercedes is 48 years old and engaged in a buy and sell business. She sells vegetables such as camote tops, okra, squash, beans, munggo and potato. She has been doing this for 15 years. Within these years of operating her business, her eldest child finished college. She is saving for her two children's educations. As of now, they are not interested in their studies, because they experience an insufficient amount of everyday necessities. As they stated, they should meet their everyday needs first.

To achieve this objective, Mercedes is asking for a loan amount of PHP 19,000 to buy vegetables such as okra and squash as additional goods to sell. Through selling these goods, she would be able to earn more than her usual income. By doing that, she can now save for the future of her two children.
