“Faith and determination will prevail you.” This is a phrase spoken by a 30-year-old woman who is engaged in a general store business. She believes in the phrase because most of the successful persons she knows are victorious because of faith and hard work. She really admires them because she was influenced by these very good traits.
Now, she wants to make her own identity to lift up her living from insufficiency. She is wishing to expand her business so that her income will increase. At the present she is requesting a loan of PHP 35,000 to purchase canned goods, biscuits, coffee, juice, shampoo, sugar and cooking oil. She hopes to win in this battle for the continuous improvement of her living and in providing satisfaction in the life that God has given to her.
