Elizabeth earns a living through her sari-sari or variety store business, selling various goods and items to the people in her place. Elizabeth lives with her family in the town of CPG, Bohol. Her husband works as a fisherman.
Elizabeth is asking for a loan to buy more stock to sell like canned goods, soda, soap and toiletries, biscuits and snack foods, flour, sugar and cooking materials. With this, she will be able to improve her stock, thus allowing her to attract more buyers in her store.
In the future, Elizabeth wants to expand her store so that it will generate more revenue necessary for the needs of the family, like food and the school expenses of her children.
