Juvy is 26 years old and married with two children. She has been running a general store for over two years. While operating this business, she also looks after her two children and keeps the house clean. It is not easy to take on all these tasks but for Juvy nothing is difficult if it is a matter of family. She works hard to provide for her family.
Now, she is requesting a 12,000 PHP loan to buy items to sell such as cooking oil, vinegar, shampoo, soap and other merchandise. In the future, she aspires to save money to expand her business and for the future education of her children.
