Angie is earning an income through her direct selling business of AVON and NATASHA products. This is her way of helping her husband in providing for the needs of their family, especially their seven children.
She plans to purchase more products to offer but she lacks capital. For this reason, she is now requesting a loan of PHP 12,000 to purchase lotion, face powder, soap, perfumes and other personal products. Having more products to offer, she knows that she will increase her sales and improve their way of living.
