Imelda's story

This is Imelda, 46, a resident of Cabrera, Pasay, Philippines. She is married and a mother to their children. She, together with her husband manages their household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

Imelda operates a buy and sell business. What she basically does is buy general merchandise from wholesalers, and sells them with a little profit. Her products are men and women’s clothes and other like products. Customers are attracted to buy with her due to the low selling prices and the many options she offers. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 300 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in sales every day.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a PHP 15,000 loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy RTW products and merchandise items to expand her product inventory. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Imelda dreams that her business will continue to grow and hopes for a good life for her family. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week and where she can also draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God she studies.
