Mrs. Lucylyn B., a widow, is blessed with 3 children. She has been a grocery retailer for two years and runs a small eatery. With her hard work, both of these business were managed well. She needs to double her effort to provide for the needs of her children because she takes care of them alone. Her business site is in the right location, along the highway where there are lots of passersby.

She cannot forget how she was helped by HSPFI after the death of her husband. Today this project is progressing. In fact, she is planning to improve the in front section of the eatery to accommodate more customers. For now, she needs PHP 15,000 to purchase ingredients for additional menu items. Someday she would like to have her own house and space for her business.
