Jonaliza is 35 years old, married and has two children. Her husband works abroad as a driver. Her children attend school in the Secondary and Elementary. Aside from engaging in selling dental supplies, she also manages her livestock business. With her determination to help her husband in paying for their expenditures, she wanted to expand her businesses, especially her selling of dental supplies where she has already gained many customers from nearby towns.
She wishes for a loan of PHP 50,000 to buy brackets, anesthesia, wires, gloves and rubbers in bulk. She hopes to obtain the loan and be able to minimize her fare expenses in traveling to buy the products in Manila.
