Rose's story

Rose, age 56, sells bamboo to earn an income. Bamboo is often used for flooring in the Philippines, especially in houses made of nipa. It is also often used for house fences. She has been engaged in her business for almost 10 years. Rose lives with her family in Getafe, Bohol. Her husband works as a carpenter. She is requesting a loan in the amount of PhP 5,000 in order to buy more bamboo. This will allow her to increase supply and improve her sales. In the future, Rose would like to increase her available business capital in order to build her business.
