Merriam's story

Merriam is happily married and blessed with two adorable children. The couple is grateful because their children have already finished their studies and have their own work. Merriam is already getting old, but she still eagerly manages her retail store. While managing her retail store, she also involves herself in a food vending business as an additional source of income. She cooks snack foods, particularly special “pancit guisado,” a Filipino noodle dish.

Now, Merriam wants to keep her variety store profitable, so she is asking for additional capital of 40,000 PHP. She hopes to obtain this amount in order to purchase stocks of grocery items, such as cases of soft drinks, canned goods, eggs, and cooking oil, to sell. She will also use the loan to buy ingredients for cooking pancit guisado.
