A loan of $500 helped to pay for cellular phone load credits needed in her business.

Jonnalyn's story

This is Jonnalyn, a 33-year-old resident of Bacoor, Cavite, Philippines. She is married, and she is the mother of one child who is not yet of school age. She and her husband are working hard to sustain their family’s everyday expenses.

Jonnalyn operates an electronic cellular phone loading station. What she basically does is to buy electronic cellular phone load credits in huge amounts then retail them for how much the customer is paying. Profit is generated depending on the networks' policy of dealership. She may buy 3,000 Philippines pesos (Php) worth of load for Php2,500, where she already has a Php500 profit, depending on promos and quotas set by the networks.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a Php20,000 loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy cellular phone load credits from different local networks. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Jonnalyn dreams to be able to send her child to school and to secure her child’s education in the future. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week.
