Mary Jane has been dreaming to uplift their ways of living. She is now 32 years old and she believes that life is too short; she hopes that before God take back her life, she already secure a good life for her children. Her two children are both studying in the primary school and her husband is out of the country working as a driver in Saudi Arabia. There is nothing more she could asked for than to see her family moved out from poor living condition. She hopes that someday, her family will be together again living a comfortable life.
Mary Jane is now managing her own general store which is located in their village at Cabisera 9 -11 Ilagan, Isabela. She started her business just before her husband left to work. She would like to expand her business that is why, she wanted to request for additional business capital amounting to PHP5, 000. She hopes that her loan will be provided because she needed to have additional working capital to grow up her business.
