Eva experienced the hardship of life when she was still single. But that never discouraged her to go on living progressively. She even tried working as an Overseas Filipino Worker [OFW] abroad for five years. She worked there as a housemaid just to earn money and be able to help her parents. Now, Eva is married and blessed with two children who are now attending school. Through her earnings from working abroad, Eva is able to put up her sari-sari (general) store business where she is selling variety of grocery items, vegetables, and meat.
Eva, 47 years old, wishes to expand her business to increase her income as well. Therefore, she is requesting a loan of PHP 50,000 to buy various stock of grocery items like seasonings, canned goods, diaper, milk, coffee, sugar and more. Eva believes that this loan will be a big help in achieving her dream.
