She gets her daughter's help with the business, and has other income such as the widow's pension that she receives. She hopes to expand her general store.

She is applying for the loan to buy rice, sugar, beans, cooking oil, pens, notebooks, soft drinks, etc. These are all the products she needs to stock her general store even more, as she believes that this loan would help her increase her inventory, with the aim of increasing her sales to obtain better earnings.
