Providing for her Children through Homemade Goodies

Racquel is one the recipients of our Microfinance Program in the Philippines.

Here is Racquel with her youngest daughter who is only two years old. Racquel joined the program in the Philippines this year. Because of the help she received through this program, she was able to sell her homemade peanut butter and atchara (fermented papaya) in her community. She was provided with a microloan as well as help on budgeting and financial management, as are all the women in our Microfinance program.

With her husband’s construction work requiring him to be away from home, it is important for Racquel to be present in their home for their two young kids. Her oldest is just in elementary school. She is blessed that her business allows her to do just this. With the increase in orders for her homemade goods, she is grateful to have found our program that gave her the capital she needed.

Her homemade goods are gaining reputation as she’s receiving more orders from new customers and bigger orders from her loyal ones. We are excited to see how Racquel’s business will grow from here. With the rise of online threats against children in the Philippines, it is important that the parents are present and with their young children.

With businesses like Racquel’s that allows her to spend most of her time at home, we are also helping her strengthen her bond with her children and protect her children from such threats.
