Ma. Leonora
Ma. Leonora is a widowed mother of five children, two of whom are married, while three are still single and working abroad. Through her hard work, faith in God and patience, she has been able to obtain life's greatest achievement, educating all of her children.

Her main product is rice, but because her daughter went abroad for better opportunities, Ma. Leonora took over her general store business last October. She is now requesting a loan of PHP 50,000 to buy sacs of rice and groceries for the store. The loan will enable her to gain more profits and provide her customers with quality goods and friendly service.

Ma. Leonora believes that she will be a successful entrepreneur someday.
