A loan of $1,225 helped to buy merchandise for sale in her general store.

Sally's story

Sally has a four-year-old child. Her husband is working abroad as a driver for a company in Saudi Arabia, so she is the primary caregiver for their child. Sally admits that being the head of the family and providing for their needs is difficult. She and her child always miss her husband, but she says they learn to adjust because she believes that her husband is working abroad for their future.

Sally manages a sari-sari, or general store, business selling canned goods, soft drinks, spices, and biscuits. She wants to expand the products she sells to her costumers, but she doesn’t have enough capital. Thus, Sally is asking for a loan of 50,000 PHP to buy beverages, eggs, breads, soaps, and shampoo. She hopes the loan will help raise her income, allowing her to help her husband sustain their household expenses.
