Gloria lives with her husband and their four children in Cabatuan, Philippines. For 20 years, Gloria has run her own sari-sari store to provide for her family, while her husband works as a tricycle driver to earn a living. Together, they have been able to pay their children’s school fees and meet their family’s needs, but Gloria was determined to expand her store so that she could provide her family with a better quality of life.
Gloria intends to use her loan to purchase cooking oil, sugar, bread, coffee, canned goods and noodles to add to her store’s selection of products. By adding these popular items to her store, she hopes that she will be able to attract new customers to her business and increase her profits. Gloria is confident that she will be able to give her children the best education she can afford as her store continues to grow.
