Erlinda's story

Erlinda R. is a 55 year old mother of three. She works very hard to save money for her daughters’ education. However, only her eldest daughter graduated from college and landed a job. Her second daughter marriaged early and has kids, while her youngest daughter stops her studies when she's in primary school. Her husband is a fishpond caretaker. She acquired her knowledge in making Chinese steamed buns when Angeline, her eldest daughter, introduced the procedures. She was able to improve the cooking recipes to meet her customers varied taste; the business has been extremely successful. She applied for this loan to buy ingredients such as bread, flour, refined sugar, brown sugar, yeast, plastics, pork, and potatoes. She needs to buy those stocks in bulk in order to get a cheaper price. She hopes that she will be able to cope up her orders and make a stall out of her income. She hopes to build a working place and employ some of her neighbor in the future.
