Joseph's story

Joseph is 38 and married, and they're blessed with one child. He is a baker, and he roams around their town, using his motorcycle to sell breads.

His net income from this business was spent on their daily expenses at home. Due to insufficient capital in his business, he would like to avail himself of a loan amount of PHP 20,000 to purchase sugar, flour, margarine, cooking oil, salt, yeast, baking soda, and buttermilk.

He's hoping that his business will continue to improve and become more profitable.
