The term sari-sari roughly translates to “variety.” Across the Philippines, these sari-sari stores are set up to offer various commodities at a low price. Everything from snacks to toiletries to cell phone credits (load) can be purchased at one of these stores.

It is said there are around 800,000 sari-sari stores across the country, they require very little overhead and, sometimes, are attached to the side of one’s house.

This row of sari-sari stores sits near the water in Iloilo City, Iloilo.
