Ronaflor is thirty-six years old and a married woman. She operates a Sari-sari store business in her town for an income. This business has been in operation for 11 years now. She sells basic household needs such as soft drinks, snacks, rice, toiletries and seasoning. She is asking for a loan to buy more items for her customers to choose from, like cooking oil, shampoo, sugar, chips, detergent, noodles and eggs.
