Rovelita has two children and she provides their basic needs. She is doing her best so that she can perform her duties and responsibilities as a mother well. Rovelita is selling cooked foods for her menu, like adobo (marinade or sauce), mechado (marinated beef) and pinakbet (vegetable and pork dish).
She wants to extend her business in order to gain income and sustain her family's needs. She is requesting a loan of PHP 10,000 to buy meat to cook and ingredients for better taste. Rovelita believes that cooking more recipes will encourage more customers and bring her a higher income as well.
