Mary Jean's story

This is Mary Jean, 36, resident of Malibay, Pasay, Philippines. She is married to Fernando, a factory worker and a mother to her children. She and her husband manage their household while operating the business. They both work hard to provide a good future for their whole family.

Mary Jean operates a manufacturing business. What she basically does is buy garments from textile factory, makes rugs and door mats out of them and sell them with a little profit. Customers are attracted to buy due to the low selling prices and the many options she offers. Her regular customers are housewives and jeepney drivers. She earns a minimum of 500 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in sales every day.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a Php 8,000 loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy more cloth, threads, needles, and other products needed in making rugs and door mats. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.
