A loan of $675 helped to purchase groceries such as beverages and sacks of rice for re-selling.


Marieta's story

Marieta is married and has four children. Aside from her children she also lives with her brother and his wife, both of whom are unemployed.
Her means of livelihood is her business. She owns a stall in her house where she sells various foodstuffs and beverages. Aside from her business she also works in farming so she can increase her earnings. She works alongside her children. In the mornings she goes to the farm with part of her family and leaves the business for her children to run.
She needs the loan in order to purchase groceries such as beverages and sacks of rice for re-selling.
Her biggest dream is opening another stall in a fast-growing residential area.
