Florelyn Jennifer is a degree holder and has three children. She is a single mother who aims to provide her children with a quality education and better way of life. Florelyn Jennifer works at a private school and at the same time she operates her rental carinderia (mini-restaurant) and refreshment stall. Whenever she has finished her class she immediately goes to her stall to help her staff member prepare the viand and other snacks to sell.
Florelyn Jennifer's business location is in front of the private school so she needs to help her staff member in preparing things to be able to have a smooth flow for her business. Aside from carinderia, she also offers home made sweet ham as an additional source of income, because her salary is used for her children's education, allowances, daily needs and other household expenses. Since she is single mother, she needs to double her effort and manage her business wisely to fulfil her dreams in life.
Florelyn Jennifer would like to ask for additional capital amounting to PHP25,000 to allow her to buy soft drinks, snack foods and frozen foods for her food stall. She believes that her business will become progressive because of her determination and hard work.
