Florida's story

This is Florida, 34, a resident of Taguig, Philippines. Her husband is Alex, an employee, and she is a mother to her four children. She, together with her husband and children, manages their household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for her everyday expenses.

Florida operates a buy and sell business. What she basically does is buy kitchen wares from wholesalers and sell them per item at a profit. Her products are kitchen tables, water jugs, plate holders and other products of the like. Customers are attracted to buy due to the low selling prices and the many products that she offers. Her regular customers are neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 500 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in sales every day.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a Php 20,000 loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy more quantities and varieties of products to expand her product inventory. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Florida dreams of being able to give all her children a good and high-quality education through all her hard work on her business. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week and where she can also draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God she studies.
