A loan of $175 helped to buy stock of garlic, onion and boxes of fish sauce for her retail stall.


Evelyn's story

Evelyn offers onions, garlic and fish sauce inside the public market of Santiago. She is 50 years of age and married with one child who currently goes to school. Evelyn's spouse is vendor of towels and foot sacks. The couple both work hard to generate funds for their living expenses.

Evelyn would like to take out a loan of 7,000 PHP (Philippines pesos), allowing her to buy stock of garlic, onion and boxes of fish sauce for her retail stall. She hopes that her business will further improve so she can secure her family welfare and educate her only child. Evelyn believes that this additional capital she requested will help her in attaining her goals in life and her business.
