Sewing has been the business Pacita has been involved in. She has had this kind of business for 20 years. Aside from sewing different kinds of dresses, she also runs her livestock business. At her age, 58, she still enjoys making different kinds of dresses.
Pacita would like to seek additional capital in the amount of PHP 8,000, which will be used to purchase garments, thread, and one piglet. She hopes that she could get this loan in order to satisfy her customers' demands and to maintain the good quality of the dresses she sews. In this way, she could earn better profits which will serve to help meet her family's needs.
