Christine is a responsible housewife who runs a variety store in her village. She decided to engage in this livelihood to assist her husband in generating income.
She is 39 years old, gifted with two children. She and her husband aim to improve their living standard to educate their children and to give them a better life. For this reason, she plans to make more improvements in the business by increasing her product offerings.
To fulfill that dream, she is asking for the loan amount of P12,000.00 to buy additional stocks of rice, frozen foods, soft drinks, laundry soaps, canned goods, beverages and seasonings for her to offer to her valued customers. Through this she believes that her variety store will become more profitable. She hopes that her requested loan will be granted.
