Analiza and her husband aim to improve their living conditions and send his youngest son to a higher level of education. She and her husband have patiently run their store for two years and her transportation business for thirteen years.
Analiza would like to ask for a loan amounting to PHP 15,000, allowing her to buy merchandise for her store and use some of the amount for repair and maintenance of her jeepney (a small bus). She believes that through the loan amount requested, she could continuously use her jeepney in transporting her passengers and could also improve her store.
Analiza is hoping that she will be able to increase her income and provide her family a better way of living.
