Noemi is 37 years old, single, and operates a retail store for a living. She sells grocery items from 6am-6pm and acquires 10,000 PHP each month. The income is used for meals, bills at home, and revolving capital in the business.

She hopes to increase her sales and income, but has insufficient capital to buy more merchandise to sell. Because of this, she is asking for a loan of 20,000 PHP to buy canned goods, eggs, breads, soft drinks, soap, and shampoo to sell.

Noemi wants to keep selling good products and services in order to achieve income stability someday.
