Rosana is business minded person. She is married to Andres and they have been blessed with four grown up children. Two of her children currently go to school, another one is working and one is married.
Rosana makes herself busy in running her general store. She has been engaged in this kind of business for 14 years.She is really thankful to God, because she is able to sustain their basic necessities through the profits gained from her store. Some of her gained profits are used to the daily maintenance of her raised hogs, allowances of children and for the repair and maintenance of her transportation business.
Rosana would like to have continued improvement of her business, so she is asking for another loan amount of PHP50,000. This amount will be used to purchase merchandise such as cooking oils, soft drinks, breads, canned goods and soap for her general store. This will really be a great help in increasing her profits. She hopes that, as time goes by, she can maintain her general store, so that she can give her two children a quality education and a better way of living.
