Thelma's story

Thelma is a mother who loves to sell snacks. She usually sells snacks like halo-halo (dessert made from shaved ice and condensed milk, mixed with sweet beans and/or fruit) in their village. She is 36 years old and is married to Liopuldo. She has been in her business for almost three years and earns about PHP 300 a day. Thelma wants to have more snacks to sell in their local community, but she has an insufficient capital. Therefore, Thelma is asking a loan in the amount of PHP 10,000 to buy raw ingredients such as banana, nata de coco (a chewy, translucent, jelly-like food), gulaman (bars of dried seaweed used to make jellies or flan) and native cakes to cook and sell. Thelma hopes to grow and expand her business to secure her family standard of living.
