Due to a lack of job opportunities, Rowenalyn runs a small variety store in her village to generate income. She is 23 years old and still single. She aimed to help her parents to improve their status of living and educate her younger brother and sister. For this reason, she planned to improve her variety store to generate a higher income.

She is asking for loan capital of PHP 12,000, which she will use to buy more stock to sell in her store, like soft drinks, canned goods, beverages, noodles, and seasonings. She is hoping that someday, she will improve her business even more through this financial assistance.
