A loan of $250 helped to buy grocery items and raw ingredients for her "pancit and sopas" to sell in her store.


Maria's story

Maria is 42 years old. She finished college but could not find a better job, so she decided to build up a business in front of the elementary school.

She is a sari-sari (variety) store owner and she sells candies, soft drinks, biscuits, juice, and "pancit and sopas" (noodles and chicken dish). She usually earns here all the expenses to finance their daily needs.

She is requesting a loan amount of PHP 10,000 to buy grocery items and raw ingredients for her “pancit and sopas" to sell in her store. The people in their community are always looking for those goods and that’s why she wants to have stocks of these goods.

She hopes that her business will further grow so that she can provide for all the needs of her school-aged children and let them finish all their desired courses someday.
