Mila is 52 years old, married and has three children. Her youngest child still attends school. To earn income, for over 10 years Mila has been managing a store where she sells grocery items. She usually earns about 10,000 PHP each month and this money goes for meals and school expenses.

She would like to increase her sales capacity and keep earning a good income, so she is borrowing 30,000 PHP to buy eggs, noodles, bread, soft drinks and sardines to sell in her store.

Mila hopes to keep generating good sales and still extend her friendly ways to her customers. This will lead her to achieve financial stability someday.
