Priza wants to improve her small village store. Thus, she hopes to receive a loan amounting to PHP 3, 000 that will serve as additional capital. The loan will be utilized to purchase rice, vegetables, meat, and fish. She is also planning to buy basic commodities for her store. Priza is hoping that through her business, she can help her husband in supporting the educational expenses of their children and hopefully repair their house in the future. Priza says that by working hand-in-hand towards their goal, they will become successful with their endeavor.
