Valentina is 21years old and earns a living by direct selling of MSE and Avon products. She has been in this line of work for half a year and has been pursuing this while sending herself to school. She also thanks her parents for their support in her business.
Now, to improve her business, she is requesting a loan of Php 5,000 to buy Avon products such as face powder, lipstick and lotion that have been requested by her customers. She hopes that this loan will allow her to increase her sales and provide her greater funding for her schooling.
