To make a living, Narelie patiently runs her home-based store. She has been engaged in this kind of business since December 2011. Narelie is a young entrepreneur and a married woman who has two children.

Narelie said that running her business is quite difficult because of some factors that could really affect it such as credit. So, she is doing her best in order to make her store grow. She is really thankful because her business runs smoothly. But still, her capital is not sufficient due to her expenses for her children, including milk, diapers, and their daily needs. For this reason, Narelie is requesting a loan in the amount of PHP 15,000 to buy more merchandise for her store. She hopes to obtain the requested loan in order to increase her profits and save some for her children's education and to improve their living conditions.
