Maria Fe
Maria Fe is a simple mother yet hardworking. She is now 40 years old and widowed for almost five years. She did not finished her college education and was engaged into early marriage. Maria Fe was not able to seek for an employment; that is why she only runs a variety store and this what occupies her daily schedule. She had been doing this for almost two years and approximately earns an income of P5,000 each month.

Maria Fe needs to earn more money to provide a good education for her two children despite being a widow. She has insufficient funds and that is why she is asking for a loan of P50,000 to buy distilled water, soft drinks, canned goods, bread, eggs, milk and sugar to sell in her store. These additional items would help increase her sales thus boost her profits.

In the future, she wants to provide a progressive life-style for her family.
