Determination and patience have been Remy's weapon in achieving success in life. She is thankful that she has been able to operate her clothing business for four years. She and her husband work hard to get more income. While she runs her clothing business her husband is also busy in managing their rice field. Remy is thirty-six years old, married, and has three children who go to school.
Remy aims to have a progressive business and make it viable as a source of income for her family. However because she has generated inadequate capital from her clothing business, she is requesting a loan of PHP 50,000 which will allow her to buy more stock of used clothes for her stall.
Remy would be thankful if this loan amount would be granted because she can make her clothing business more productive. In this way, she could send her children into a higher level of education and save some money for emergencies.
