A loan of $250 helped to buy slippers and flip flops for sale.


Jonas's story

Jonas is a 30-year-old businessman from the town of San Miguel, Bohol. For three years, he has made a good living buying and selling flip flops, slippers, and clothing. He is asking for a loan to buy more slippers to increase his income. He hopes that the loan will help him provide a healthy diet and education for his three children, aged five months and five and eight years.

In the future, Jonas dreams of expanding his business to sell a wider variety of products to his customers.
