Chona has fully repaid her loan of £441.45
Chona Beril is 41 years old and married with six children. Her husband Manuel is a fisherman. She lives with her family in the town of Placer in Surigao del Norte province. Chona is a butcher and manages a small stall in the town’s public market. Her supplier is a locally registered meat distributor and she on-sells the meat with a small mark-up. The beef, pork and chicken is displayed in separate stainless steel containers or trays. Her stall is also located near where vegetables are sold and many customers come almost every day to buy small quantities of both. Although, space is limited she in fact is assisted by four relatives with regards to arranging the cuts of meat, serving customers and re-stocking. Chona sought a loan from the microfinance organisation, Surigao Economic Development Foundation, in order to buy a new fridge/freezer. She can now store greater quantities of produce and keep it fresher and chilled. She intends to repay the loan over 12 months.
