A loan of $700 helped to buy more burri and rubber for vulcanizing.


Marta's story

Marta, 63, is married with three adult children. She is a hardworking woman who relies on her vulcanizing shop and her hat-making business for her living. (Vulcanizing is the process of converting rubber and other materials into stronger substances.) These businesses started eight years ago.

Marta is asking for a loan of 30,000 Philippine pesos to buy more burri and rubber for vulcanizing. She hopes, with available materials, she can be more productive each day for better business profitability. In the future, she hopes to be in the same business but able to expand her production. Her income will provide food for her and her husband, who is also her partner in the business.
