Flordeliza offers different kinds of vegetables and native cakes within her locality. She is happily married and blessed with four children. Only one child still attends school.
Flordeliza started her business in 1990. Finally, she was able to improve her financial stability through the help of her spouse. Aside from the vending of vegetables, Flordeliza also owns a half-hectare of rice field and vegetable farmland. According to her, she used to sell her products around her local community using her motorcycle transport.
Flordeliza still hopes for continuous growth of her business, so she is asking for a loan of PHP 15,000. This loan amount will be used to buy raw corn and different kinds of vegetables, such as string beans and eggplant.
Flordeliza is looking forward to approval of her requested loan amount. In this way, she could let her one child finish her studies and she could secure her family's future.
