A loan of $400 helped to buy shampoo, toothpaste, conditioner and seasonings for her variety store.


Marfina's story

Marfina is happy for the life that she has. She is married and owns a sari-sari store. According to her, the only business she had before this was a farm which was not enough to meet the basic necessities of her family and send her three children to school. With her situation, Marfina did not stop believing that someday she would be able to overcome these trials.

Marfina is grateful because her three children finished their college education and have degrees. All of them are now working abroad in accordance with their own profession. Marfina admits that she receives remittances from her children but she doesn’t want to rely on them. Instead, she wants to have her own source of income for which she can gain profit. Marfina requests a loan of PHP 17,000 to buy shampoo, toothpaste, conditioner and seasonings. She hopes that the amount she requests will be granted for her to earn profit to deal with emergencies that may arise in the family.
