Trining Santos manages a convenience store in Aurora, Philippines as the main source of income for the family. She lives with her husband Arturo Santos and their three children. For many years, she has sold a wide variety of groceries and household goods while her husband helps her in their business operation. As the family gets older and their daily expenses increase, her family often struggles to make ends meet. Trining was determined to improve her business and to make it more profitable, but she didn’t have the capital she needed. She found the solution to her business troubles when she joined Opportunity International. She is receiving valuable financial training and a loan, which she plans to use to purchase stock for her store in bulk. By expanding the selection of her merchandise and amount of goods available at her store, she hopes that she will be able to meet more of her neighbors’ needs, sell to more customers and increase her profits. Trining also plans to save so she can ensure that her children will have a better future and to raise them out of poverty.
