Lorna is 51 years old, and has a shop that serves as her primary source of income. She offers a variety of products such as perfumes, jewelries and accessories. Within 20 years of this kind of business existing, she had learned that a business cannot be a business without consumers. So she usually meets the request and demand given to her by her consumers. Especially to her loyal customers, she really has the eagerness to meet their request because they are a great help in growing her business.

In connection to this, she is requesting a loan of 50,000 pesos as additional working capital. It will be used to purchase gift items, Natasha, and Avon products. These products will serve to reap the profits of her hard work. Hopefully, her business will grow as people grow their needs.
