A loan of $475 helped to pay for additional computer parts and supplies needed in her business.


Ma. Luz's story

This is Ma. Luz, who is 48 years old and a resident of Payatas, Philippines. She is married to Rolando, a driver, and the mother of two children. Together with her husband, they manage their household while operating a business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for her everyday expenses.

Ma. Luz operates an Internet café business. There is more need now than before for services like these, as customers’ demand increases. Her main patrons are students who require her services for school requirements. She also has people who need to rent computers for business purposes, like writing a resume or any office documentation, as well as people who just love to surf the net and check any social network. She earns a minimum of PHP 500 in profit every day.

To help her continue operations, she is requesting a PHP 20,000 loan. She will use the loan to buy additional computer parts and accessories needed in her business. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Ma. Luz dreams of being able to give 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 their work every week.
