Elsa Ligua, a mother of four, and her niece Rose Anne, a single mother, save money for their children’s futures through Grameen Foundation’s microsavings program in the Philippines.
Elsa’s husband has a shoe repair stall near the public market in San Pablo City. For years, Elsa has added to the family income by selling food. All four of their children go to school. She is proud that their oldest child also works as a supermarket clerk.
