Filomena's story

Filomena is 61 years old, is married and has independent children. She sells staples in her neighborhood store, which is located in the Pampahasi area.

This loan is her 14th loan cycle with the institution. Filomena will use the loan to buy wholesale grocery goods such as rice and sugar. She is asking for a loan because of her need to stock her business. Filomena faces some challenges in her business like imbalances in the local economy. She will use the profits to keep buying varied merchandise.

Her wish for her business is to have a bigger and better stocked store, and thus have more customers and thereby improve her income.
