Vicente's business involvement used to be in plastic wares, but last November he changed it into clothing sales. He started his sales business at the age of 22 years. Vicente is happily married and has three children. All his children currently go to school, while his wife stays at their home. She looks after their children and is in charge of budgeting all their household needs.
Vicente is now enjoying his clothing sales business. He dreams of having a stable source of income and of educating his three children. His goal in life pushes him to strive hard in order to obtain better profits to secure his family's future. To make his goal realistic, he is asking for a loan of PHP25,000 which allows him to buy volumes of towels, shorts, leggings and sandals for his clothing sales business. He hopes for approval of his requested loan.
