Maria's story

Maria, age 54, raises pigs to earn an income. She has been engaged in this business for 10 years. To generate additional income, she also has a basket-weaving business. She makes and sells baskets made of buri, a native variety of palm.

Maria and her husband have raised four children, now grown, and live in Corella, Bohol.

Maria has requested a loan in the amount of PhP 10,000 in order to buy feed for her pigs and materials for basket-weaving.

In the future, Maria would like to invest in other business ventures so that she can have a sustainable livelihood.
