Maricel is a 31-year-old married woman, and a mother of two children from San Miguel, Bohol. She runs a store in her place selling dry goods and other commodities to the people in her place.
Maricel is asking for a loan to buy more goods to sell like slippers, umbrellas, and school supplies like bags and others. With this, she will be able to augment her stocks, thus allowing her to cater for more buyers and customers in her store.
In the future, Maricel hopes of expanding her store so that it will generate more revenue necessary for the needs of the family and schooling of her children.
