La Arnie Lee is full of hope in life. She is 26 years old and married with one child. Her family is currently living in the village of Gundaway Cabarroguis.
La Arnie Lee has is operating a business known as "EB cycle Parts" where she offers different kinds of motorcycle parts and car parts. She has been in this kind of business for five years. She started with PHP 20,000 in capital. With her small capital, she was able to improve her spare parts business. La Arnie Lee is really grateful because her grandmother-in-law is supportive about making the business more productive. The income generated from her business is used for their daily basic needs, allowances, monthly electric bill and school fees for her daughter.
La Arnie Lee has been doing her best in order to obtain success in life. Though she has only one child, her expenses are still too high because her child is studying at a private school. She wants this for her only child because she was not able to finish her studies due to an early marriage. At this time, she would like to buy mufflers, oil, tires and other kinds of spare parts for motorcycles because the products immediately sell out. With her goal of having a high income and providing her customers with quality products, she is requesting a bigger loan amount of PHP 40,000 this time. She hopes that she can obtain this loan amount. This would be a big help in making her business expand.
