A loan of $125 helped additional business capital.


Minerva's story

Minerva B. is a businesswoman who roams the village with her styrofoam box filled with fish, pork, and chicken meat to sell to her co-villagers in Ilagan, Isabela. Her husband who currently works abroad gave her the initial capital. But since Minerva does not want to depend on her husband’s remittances she decided to request a loan amounting to PHP 5,000 to have additional business capital. At the moment, Minerva and her son, Berrick Kyle, who is already 9 years old and currently in grade three, are still living in Minerva's parent’s house since they don’t have their own yet. Minerva hopes that they will have their own house someday, beside her parent’s home.
