Emmy is a faithful mother. She is 48 years old, married and has two children who attend school. Her husband is a fireman.
To supplement his income, she manages a small store, selling grocery items to the people in her village. She is now borrowing a loan of PHP 50,000 to buy more biscuits, eggs, breads, canned goods, cases of soft drinks and sugars to sell. This will increase sales capacity and improve her income as well.
She promises to pay back her loan and keep extending good products and friendly services to all her customers.
In the future, Emmy would like to continuously grow as a successful vendor and provide good education to her children as the best legacy she can pass on to them.
