Susana Dayap is a hardworking wife and mother of two living in Dingalan, Philippines. For many years, she has owned and managed a small convenience store selling a variety of groceries, vegetables, and products to her community. However, Susana struggled to have enough groceries available for her customers to purchase and found that her income was consistently not enough to pay her bills along with her family’s basic needs. Without the means or knowledge about how to expand her business, Susana worried that her family would never become financially stable. Susana found the solution to her troubles when she heard about the loan and financial training she could receive from Opportunity International. With her loan, Susana bought her products in bulk and started to purchase a wider variety of merchandise to attract more patrons to her store. This influx of customers has increased her sales and allowed her to more comfortably provide for her family’s daily necessities. Susana hopes to keep expanding her business so that she and her family can have a more secure financial future.
