Jennifer Cabigas lives with her husband and their child in Tarlac, Philippines where she runs her own independent convenience store from their home. As a devoted mother, providing for her young child is her top priority. Jennifer knew there must be ways of improving her profits and management of the store, but with little practical training in business, she didn’t know what steps to take. Furthermore, the family budget was just too tight to allow for capital investment. When a friend introduced her to the programs offered through Opportunity International, Jennifer’s hope for a better plan began to renew. Jennifer put her program training to quick use by making more efficient management decisions and adopting smarter purchasing practices. She increased her stock to provide a wider selection of goods and began purchasing in bulk at lower prices. Jennifer is already seeing the little bit of investment pay off in increased traffic! Jennifer is proud to serve as a role model for other aspiring women entrepreneurs in her neighborhood. She hopes she can continue learning and apply her lessons to the benefit of her family.
