She manages a 'sari-sari' store business within her village.She is selling various items like soap, shampoo, conditioner and beverages. Generated income from her store business is used for her piggery business.
Florencia wishes to improve her sales and income but her capital is not enough; that's the reason why she's requesting a loan of PHP 30,000 to buy canned goods, beverages, condiments and many more goods for her general store. She hopes to earn better income to secure her family's welfare and be able to ensure her hogs have proper nutrition.
