A loan of $250 helped to buy more items to sell, like charcoal and firewood.


Dominga's story

Dominga is a married woman with four children. She is 47 years old, and she has had a retail business of firewood and charcoal for several years now.

Dominga buys and sells charcoal and firewood to the people in her community. This business provides her the income she needs to support her husband in meeting the needs of the family, especially the school expenses of their children.

Dominga joined CEVI hoping to gain access for financial support through loan grants and other services. Dominga is requesting a loan of PHP 10,000 to buy more items to sell, like charcoal and firewood. She wants to augment her stock in order to reach out to a greater number of customers in their locality and to avoid shortages of supply.

In the near future, Dominga hopes to reinvest in this retail business and to bring it to a larger scale to cater more clients. Moreover, she is persistent in sending her children to school to attain a higher level of learning, which is essential for a bright future.
