Emeliana's story

Emeliana is 40 years old and has three children ages 10, 15 and 17. She is a sari-sari (general) store owner from Ubay, Bohol in the Philippines. She sells basic household goods like shampoo, toothpaste, sugar, cooking oil, seasoning and detergent. She is asking for a loan of 8,000 PHP to buy soft drinks, rice, canned goods and gasoline. This way, she will not run out of items that sell the most, maximizing her income.

In the future, she hopes to sell items that she does not offer at present to make a good profit for her children.
