Crestita is 52 years old, happily married and blessed with four grown-up children.
The main source of income of Crestita’s family comes primarily from her retail store. She has been in this kind of business for almost ten years. The results of her labor make her really thankful to Almighty God who has given her the strength to face all the challenges in her life.
Crestita would like to buy stock of groceries such as soft drinks, breads, assorted biscuits, ingredients, canned goods, shampoo, detergents, soap and other basic necessities. With this in mind, she is requesting a loan of P10,000. She believes that through this loan, she could expand her business and make it more profitable which will enable her to provide customer satisfaction.
