Rosemarie is 39 years of age, married and has two children. While her husband is working abroad, she runs her retail store business in their village; this business serves as their source of income. Being a mother of her children, she always wants the best for them, and she also stands as a father of her children.

Rosemarie sells various types of grocery items in their village but she wishes to sell products that are seldom sold in their village. Due to financial constraints, Rosemarie can’t push her wishes, thus she is asking for a loan of PHP 35,000 to buy beverages, powdered milk and diapers for babies to sell. She hopes to improve her business and increase more income to meet their needs.
