A loan of $500 helped to buy vegetables, native cakes and "balut" to sell.


Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth is from the village of Rizal. She is 46 years old, and is married with two children. To make a living, Elizabeth is engaged in a moving business: she usually sell snacks in their local community. She has been in this business for five years and earns a maximum of PHP 500 a day.

Right now, Elizabeth is asking for a loan in the amount of PHP 20,000 to buy vegetables, native cakes and "balut" (fertilized duck eggs) to sell. Elizabeth hopes that she will increase her income, so that she will be able to continuously send her children to school.
