Gaudiosa is 47 year old married woman and mother of three young children, from Getafe, Bohol.
She has run a sari-sari (variety) store business for almost four years now. Gaudiosa works hard to support her husband in meeting the needs of the family, especially for the schooling of her children.
She is asking for a loan to purchase additional stocks to sell, such as dry goods, sodas, snack foods, soaps, and toiletries. With this, she will be able to attract and cater more buyers in her store, thus augmenting her sales and profit.
