A loan of $475 helped to buy more ingredients like coconut milk, brown sugar, glutinous rice and empty coconut shells and canisters (for storage).


Digna's story

Digna is a 42-year-old married woman from Getafe, Bohol. She has five children; the oldest is 20 while the youngest is 12.

She engages in a food-vending business. She makes kalamay (a sticky, sweet delicacy made of coconut milk, brown sugar and ground glutinous rice). She works hard to earn a living.

Due to the high demand for kalamay, Digna requested a loan of 20,000 PHP (Philippines pesos) to buy more ingredients like coconut milk, brown sugar, glutinous rice and empty coconut shells and canisters (for storage).

In the future, Digna would like to manage her business well to grow and expand and to be able to send her children to school as well as have a sustainable livelihood.
