General store is the business of Melba M.. She is a resident of Barangay Rizal West San Isidro, Isabela. She is thankful to have Rolando M., who is a very responsible and a loving husband. Melba wanted to expand her store and buy additional stock of merchandise because their place is far to the marketplace that’s why she is requesting a loan amounting PHP15, 000 for her additional business capital. Somehow, by having the added capital, she could also minimize her fare in going to the marketplace where she bought different kinds of merchandise. She is blessed with six children and she hopes that she could sustain all their needs especially their educational needs.
