“Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe,” is an expression of Ricardo, a 46-year-old businessman. He is an owner of a variety store operating successfully for 12 years and earning a PHP 10,000 every month.
An optimistic person like Ricardo provides further positive results in every inch of his work. He keeps on dreaming and wishes to achieve his dream through a loan of PHP 10,000 as additional working capital. This will be used to buy supplementary stock such as soft drinks for his variety store. He hopes this would be a big contribution to achieve success.
He hopes for every success in his operation to help more people.
