Francisco is a small entrepreneur who sells rice grain, livestock feeds and charcoal to the people in her village. He did not have a stall to stock his products so he sells on a house-to-house basis. He has been patiently doing this for almost five years. He would like to improve and diversify his business, so he is now asking for additional capital of PHP 20,000 to buy charcoal, rice grain, and livestock feed to sell. He would like to make his business more profitable so that he can provide enough sustenance for his family, especially for future expenses in the college education of his only child.
