Emma's story

Emma’s priority in life is to send her children in school until they finish college and hold a degree. Emma is 44 years of age, married and has five school age children. Her husband is her partner in managing her business. She and her husband sell plastic wares and kitchen wares in different villages.
Emma wishes to expand the products she sells to increase her income which she will use to attain her priority in life. She wanted to borrow a loan of 50,000 PHP to buy basins and some glassware products to sell. She hopes to avail the loan and expand the products she sells to gain income to further support her children's needs in school.
