Susana's story

Susana is married and lives in Cortes, Bohol. She is 59 years old and the mother of three grown children. She earns a living by selling snack foods like banana chips, rice cakes, pastries and camote (or sweet potatos). She has been in the food-vending business for 20 years, and is requesting a loan for PHP 23,000 to buy more ingredients, including flour, cooking oil and sugar, so that she can continue to serve her customers at a nearby school. Susana does not rely on her children for support and is working hard to earn a living and prepare for old age. In the future, her goal is to invest to other business in order to have a sustainable livelihood.
