Alicia's story

Alicia is a 59-year-old married woman and a mother of a grown-up daughter from Alicia, Bohol. She has run a sari-sari or variety store business for more than 10 years now. She sells various goods and commodities to the people in her locality.

Alicia is asking for a loan to buy additional merchandise to sell like canned goods, candies, snack foods, cooking ingredients, soap and toiletries. With this stock, she will be able to attract and cater to more buyers in her store, thus augmenting her sales and profit. In the future, Alicia has hopes of making her business a success and saving money for reinvestment in the same venture.
