A loan of $250 helped to purchase traveling bags, sling bags, backpacks and some wallets and belts for her retail stall.


Melanie's story

Melanie has offered different kinds of bags, wallets and belts since 2010. Her first business location was within the public market of Santiago, but now she has transferred to the Public Market of Cordon because her business location burned down. According to her, it's really hard to start all over again but it would be more difficult to totally stop running her retail business. Melanie would like to ask for additional capital of 10,000 PHP to allow her to re-stock her stall. She will use to purchase traveling bags, sling bags, backpacks and some wallets and belts for her retail stall. She hopes to obtain this loan amount so she can recover from her big losses and be able to provide her family basic necessities. Malanie believes that success relies on hard work and wise management of business. She's doing her best to succeed both with her family and her business.
