Rose's story

This is Rose, 45, who is a resident of Dasmarinas, Cavite, Philippines. She is married to Sonny, a driver, and she is a mother to four children. She, together with her husband and children, manages their household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to save for the future of her children.

Rose operates a community pharmacy store. She sells basic medicine and vitamins to the community. She earns money by getting supplies at wholesale prices and selling them by the piece. Aside from this, she operates a tricycle and sells mineral water for added income. Her store is located adjacent to her house. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of PHP 600 in sales every day.

To help her continue the operations of her business, she is requesting a PHP 26,000 loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy additional medicine and mineral water to expand her product inventory. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Rose hopes to be able to expand soon and dreams to be able to give her children a good and high-quality education through all her hard work on her business. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week, and she also draws strength and inspiration from the Word of God she studies.
