“Every painstaking, there is satisfaction and prosperity.” This quotation was stated by Joyce. She is a business-minded woman who is engaged in selling vegetables. She has been working so hard to provide the educational needs of her two children. She doesn’t want her children to have the same fate as her.

She’s already been operating her business for seven years. During this time, she usually earns a net income of PHP 10,000 that she saves for emergency purposes. Despite the difficulty of selling, she works hard to provide the needs of her family.

She is requesting a loan of PHP 15,000 as additional working capital to buy beans, cabbage, squash and onions. She hopes that she could roll her loan amount to improve their living conditions as well as to prosper her business.
