Ma.leonora Theresa
Margaret Leonora Theresa, age 42, runs a general store business to earn an income. She and her husband live happily in a rural community with their three children.

Due to financial hardship, she aims to improve her general store in order to generate sufficient income to help her husband in financing the education of the children. She plans to increase her product offerings in order to satisfy her customers' demand. As she currently has inadequate capital for this investment, she is requesting a loan in the amount of PhP 10,000. She will use her loan funds buy more stocks of rice, grocery items, charcoal, and pre-paid phone cards to offer for sale.

Margaret Leonora Theresa is confident that she will be able to improve her business through this financial assistance.
