Madel is 27 years old and is a very friendly and helpful woman. She currently has a cellphone shop in her village. Over the two years of operating this occupation, their underprivileged lifestyle was improved. She started doing such a business as she began to have her own family and she didn't want her family to experience difficulties in living. This causes her to become a hard worker and fascinated in operating a business to avoid an awful life.
She wants to make high profits so, for this reason, she is requesting a loan of 16,000 PHP to buy new models of cellphones as her customers requested. She believes that providing for customer demand will increase her income. Madel hopes for her loan to be granted.
