Francisca Grospe is a hardworking mother and entrepreneur who lives in the Philippines with her two children. For many years, Francisca has managed a convenience store providing a variety of everyday necessities and lifestyle goods to her community. It hasn’t been easy for her family, and there was a time when Francisca couldn’t afford her children’s school fees. Everything began to change for Francisca and her family when a friend introduced her to Opportunity International. Francisca received financial training and a loan to invest in her shop and purchase inventory in bulk. With more products to sell and a greater diversity of products on the shelves, Francisca was able to attract new customers and increase her sales. Thanks to the loan she received, Francisca will be able to save for her family and keep her children in school.
