Marilyn needed £2354.81 for her business.
Marilyn Cabataña is married with five children, three of whom still live at home. Her husband is a smallholder farmer. She lives with her family near the town of San Remigio in Cebu province. Her husband grows maize on around five hectares of land. The household relied on farming until Marilyn decided to open a shop selling household groceries around three years ago. She also sells animal feed since many of the people living locally raise poultry and livestock. The shop has grown and she now employs two assistants. The shop is located around kilometres from her home in a public market. She works seven days a week, Fridays and Sundays are the busiest days. To improve her cash flow and invest in the business, Marilyn became a member of our local partner organisation, Lamac Multi-Purpose Cooperative, and has already received and repaid four short-term loans. She requested a new loan in order to buy dozen sacks of rice, maize and animal feed. Marilyn prefers to buy in bulk as she can arrange transport for all the stock at once and she receives a discount from wholesalers. A part of the loan also will be used to cover house repairs.
