As a mother, Josephine always sees to it that she meets the needs of her family, especially when it comes to the educational needs of her children. Her dream is for her children to finish their studies and become employed with good jobs and not to experience hardships in life. To provide them a good education, she sells dried fish. This source of income helps her husband. But still, their income is not enough. So she would like to ask for financial assistance in the amount of PHP 5,000 to buy more dried fish to sell. She hopes for her loan approval.
