A loan of $500 helped to expand her welding shop.


Erma's story

Erma owns and manages a welding shop in her community which provides the financial resources to cope with her family's growing needs. Her husband is the one who is trained in this field, but she helps him through managing the business and providing good communication and friendly character to their customers. She is planning to expand their business but insufficient capital stops her from executing the plan. In order to fulfill her plans, she is asking for a loan of PHP 20,000 for the expansion of the welding shop. She will then be able to support her husband in earning a higher income and saving for the education of their two children.
