"Try and try until you succeed!" is the life motto of Maricel Prado. She lives in the Philippines with her husband Mansuato Prado. While Mansuato works as a farmer, Maricel operates a small piggery and a convenience store. She also helps her husband farming crops and vegetables for additional income. Since she was little, Maricel always wanted to have a business so that she could have a better life and help her family. She partnered with Opportunity International because she wanted to improve her businesses and needed financial assistance to do so. Through her loan, she was able to expand her store and put up additional pig pens at her piggery. She is very thankful for the programs and services offered to her through Opportunity International. Maricel now plans to reinvest her profits in her businesses so that she can continue to render good services to all her customers.
