Henry's hobby is baking different kinds of bread. His business location was in Mindoro but as time passed, the couple decided to stay here in Isabela to start a bakery business. Henry devotes his time to improving his baked breads to gain a better income and to become a well-known baker someday.
Henry's bakery is now two years old. He is 47 years old, married and has seven children. He would like to educate all his seven children because it's the only inheritance he can give to them. His main priority at this time is to increase the profit he gains so he can save for the bright future of his seven children. At this time, he is starting another outlet of his bakery but his capital is inadequate, so he is requesting PHP 25,000. Some of the loan will be used to buy necessary ingredients such as flour, baking soda and sugar to improve the taste and quality of the baked breads he offers. He knows that someday he could fulfill his dream in life through empowering his business and adopting new strategies in baking new bread recipes.
