Cheryl Galino is a hardworking mother of two who lives with her husband, Ariel, and children in a village in the Philippines. For the past five years, Cheryl has run a business selling fruit and vegetables at the local market. Each morning, she wakes up early to set up; her days are long, and she works hard to ensure she’s selling only high-quality produce to satisfy her customers. It hasn’t been easy for Cheryl - she and her family have had to overcome many hardships. In fact, there was a time when she worried she wouldn’t be able to keep her children in school. Everything began to change when Cheryl joined Opportunity International. Cheryl received financial training and a loan to purchase more fruit and vegetables. With more produce to sell and with a greater selection, Cheryl was able to attract new customers and increase her sales. Thanks to the loan she received, Cheryl will be able to continue to grow her business and ensure her children receive the best education and future possible.
