Elizabeth is 57 years old, married and has three children, all of whom are employed as professionals. She earns a living by running a general store and by making dresses and providing tailoring services. She has been in this line of work for almost 10 years, thanks in part to the fact that her husband manages her store when she is busy making dresses. She is applying for a loan for PHP 35,000 to buy more groceries to sell in her store, where sales have been very high lately because it is located along a busy road. She will use the loan to buy canned goods, eggs, oil, soft drinks, milk, sugar, shampoo, instant noodles and ingredients needed for cooking. She hopes that his loan will allow her to provide her family with a better life.
