Every human being aspires for a better living. And Anita, aged 55, really seeks a good source of income to achieve a better existence. She wants to offer a standard way of living to her four children in order for them to be motivated in conquering their own lives. In this concern, she is being devoted to her fruits and vegetables business. She wants to boost up a good income from it. And to make that possible, she is requesting financial assistance in the amount of 50,000 PHP (Philippines pesos) to buy eggplants, potatoes, cabbages, mangoes, ginger, onions and okra. She believes that through adding additional capital to her business, she will upgrade her usual income.
