A loan of $625 helped to buy more bananas to sell.


Emerlita's story

The major reason Emerlita works hard is to save for the education of her three children. She has been buying and selling bananas for more than five years. With her continual devotion to her business, she needs to have enough money to invest in it. So, she would like to request a loan of PHP 25,000 to buy more bananas to sell. This would make her business prosper.
