Juliet is a native of Cagayan, Province. She is 29 years old, married and has two kids, ages 11 and 3. She is engaged in a sari-sari store business (a community-based variety store) in their village. Her store is made from very simple materials and is quite small. When she has no customers, she does household chores and takes care of their youngest child.

Her store is open from 6 in the morning until 8 in the evening. She hopes to improve her store into a bigger one and to be able to sell different commodities to meet the demands of her customers and also to generate a higher income. Thus, Juliet is requesting a loan from the lenders in the amount of PHP 12,000.00 as additional capital for her business to become productive.
