Rita's story

Rita is a 39-year-old, sari-sari store owner, from Cortes, Bohol. She is a married woman with three children, ages 5, 12, and 18.

Rita sells basic household commodities needed by her neighbors, like seasoning, chips, milk, coffee, and toiletries. She is asking for a loan to buy canned sardines, corned beef, beef loaf, soft drinks, noodles, eggs, and seasoning, which are bought by her neighbors on a daily basis.

In the future, Rita wants to make improvements and expand her store, to gain a greater profit. Any income will be used for the family's daily consumption, savings, school fees, and reinvestment in the same business.
