Relita's story

Relita is from the village of San Fermin. She is 50 years old. Relita is a single parent who has a strong determination to lift up her family from poverty.

Relita is engaged in a food-marketing business. She has a mini-grocery store in the market, where she sells a variety of foods. She wants to expand her business. To make that possible, Relita is requesting a loan in the amount of PHP 30,000 to buy vegetable oil, eggs, ginger, onions, garlic, salt and more food to sell. These additional items would help increase her sales and thus boost her profits. In the future, she wants to provide a progressive life-style for her family.
