Susan C., who is thirty-one years old, has been a wholesaler-retailer of vegetables in Poblacion, Quezon for five years. Her husband assists Susan with the purchases of vegetables in Valencia, utilizing their motorcycle at least three times a week. With their personal capital plus the financial assistance of HSPFI, the couple would be able to sustain the project. Susan is requesting additional loan assistance from HSPFI in the amount of $325, which they will use to purchase more vegetables.
