Dalen runs her retail store at Caggay, where her family also lives. Dalen sells grocery items to the people in her village and generates about PHP 5,000 each month selling this merchandise.
She would like to increase her sales and is asking for a loan of PHP 10,000 to buy sardines, eggs, breads, and noodles to sell. Selling more commodities will help increase sales and income as well.
In the future, with good funds, Dalen will attain her goal of giving the best education to her three children.
