Janeth is 39 years old and works as a female motorcycle operator. She says, “If others can do it, I can do it also because I am determined to do it.” She is quietly different because of her strong determination. Being a female motorcycle operator is difficult but through her dedication and affection for her two children, she can work as a man.
She wants her children to finish their desired courses and attain their dreams. Therefore, she needs to work hard to earn a higher income daily. Through working every day, her motorcycle also deteriorates so Janet is asking for a loan in the amount of P5,000 to buy oil, paint and steel parts for maintenance of her motorcycle to continue her operations.
She hopes it will strengthen her income daily to bring success to their poor lifestyle.
