Conception is engaged in a retail business selling grocery items in their village. She is 56 years old, married and has five children. Among her children, three are working abroad while others are government employees. With her status in life, Concepcion admitted that the remittances her children give her is enough to sustain their needs but she wanted to have her own source of income.

Concepcion is requesting a loan of PHP 10,000 to buy grocery items to sell. She hopes to expand the business, and earn more. Somehow she will also help others who are unfortunate through her earnings.
