Juanita's story

Juanita is a 66-year-old widow from Leyte, Philippines. She earns a living through her sari sari or retail store business. She sells various goods and items to the people in her place. Several months ago, a typhoon ravaged the country and swept away thousands of households including Juanita's business.

As of this time, Juanita wants to improve her store once again so that it will generate income. With this, she joined CEVI to gain access to loan services offered by the organization to micro entrepreneurs like her. She is requesting a loan to buy additional merchandise to sell like canned goods, noodles, soda and beverages, candies and snack foods, soap and toiletries. In the future, Juanito hopes that this loan could help her to improve her way of living.
