Marites lives in Solana with Raymundo, her spouse, and a daughter who is attending school. The family lives are less fortunate. Instead of being lazy at home, Marites runs a store selling grocery items in her neighborhood. This way, she can add to her spouse's income, which is derived from a farming business.
Marites needs to increase the quantity of nerchandise she offers, in order to acquire more sales from the business, but she has inadequate capital to buy merchandise. She is now asking for a loan of PHP 10,000 to buy milk, sugar, canned goods, soft drinks, breads and eggs to sell.
In the future, Marites would like to continue growing as a businesswoman for the overall welfare of her family.
