Noemi has a business selling surplus spare parts for vehicles. Her partner in managing the business is her husband. They have managed the business for eight years, and still hope to develop their business further. Noemi started the business by buying and selling in different villages. Once they had enough earnings, they decided to put up a stall in front of their house.
Noemi has not stopped dreaming. At present, her dreams include having their own car, a better house for more comfortable living, and sending their four children to school to finish their education.
Noemi wants to sell rare spare parts that they seldom have to sell. Therefore, she is asking for a loan of 30,000 PHP to buy spare parts to sell. She and her husband will work hard to bring her dreams to fruition.
