Leah has been involved in direct selling, rice farming and a livestock business. She has managed her direct selling and her rice field for ten years, and the livestock business for two years.
Leah aspires to maintain all her businesses, but at this time she struggles for shortage of capital that's the reason why she is asking for a loan of PHP 9,000. She will be using this loan to buy cosmetic products, perfumes, sandals, shoes, blouses and pants for her direct selling business. She hopes that this loan amount will be granted for her dreams to be fulfilled someday.
