Venus's story

Venus hails from the town of Tabontabon. She started her shop five years ago, where she sold goods ranging from eggs, seasonings, edible oil, assorted canned goods, biscuits, and soft drinks. In addition, she raises hogs for supplemental income. She is a mother of two children, aged 6 and 15 years respectively.

Venus decided to take a loan to purchase more goods ranging from beverages to noodles, and items for raising hogs, like feed and hog supplements. These products will enable her to maximize her resources and maintain the flow of merchandise. Thus, she could start to save and invest any possible profits into her business to become successful.
