Lailani's story

This is Lailani, 43, a resident of Manila, Philippines. She is married to Nelson and is a mother. She and her husband manage their household while operating the business. She works hard to provide income for her everyday expenses.

Lailani operates a tailoring business. She mainly offers sportswear, shirts and jogging pants used in physical activities in school. Seasonal demands for clothing, like uniforms, occur year round. She also does repairs and alterations. Her regular customers are her neighbors and community. She earns a minimum of Php500 in sales every day.

To help her continue operations, she is requesting a Php20,000 loan. She will use the loan to buy more raw materials like fabric, thread and other items. She expects a boost in her income as she expands her business.

Lailani hopes her business grows and dreams of giving her family a good future through all her hard work. She faithfully meets with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week.
