Myrliza mentioned that " Hardships and difficulties" are the stepping stone towards success. She is a hard-working mother who was blessed with two children. She owns and manages a variety store in their village to help her husband in providing their family needs. She aims to strengthen her business to make it a viable source of income to support the education of their children and to save for their future.
Due to inadequate capital, she is asking for a loan of P25,000 to buy additional stocks of soft drinks, canned goods, snack foods, soaps, beverages, candies and toothpaste to sell in their village. She believes that her loan will help to increase her product offerings and satisfy customers needs. She hopes that in the future, she will make her business grow as she continues managing her business despite problems and difficulties in life.
