A loan of $125 helped to purchase “pancit” (or noodles), cabbage, pechay, meat and beans.


Gina's story

Gina is 44 years old and married with four children. She has a “carinderia,” or small eatery, that has been offering “pancit” and viands for more than four years. This is her way of helping her husband as well as improving their living situation. To earn a higher income, she is asking for a loan of PHP 5,000 as additional working capital. This will be used to purchase “pancit” (or noodles), cabbage, pechay, meat and beans in addition to her offered foods. Hopefully, she will improve her family's living conditions. She prays for the growth of her business and hopes to be financially stable in the future.
