Marissa's story

Marissa is a hard-working mother, who aims to become financially stable and to give her family a better future. She is now 48 years old and has two children. She owns and manages a general store to generate income, while her husband manages their rice farming business. She has operated this business for three years and usually earns a profit of PHP 300 a day, which she usually spends on their basic necessities.

Marissa planned to increase her product offerings to satisfy her customers' needs, but due to financial difficulty, she is asking for additional capital of PHP 20,000 to buy soft drinks, canned goods, sugar, oils, soaps, bread, shampoo and candies to sell in her store. She mentioned that this loan will help her to improve the business and make her dream come true.
