Skyline, age 34, began her business because she needed a way to generate income when she found herself hardly able to provide the needs of her children. She wants to keep growing her business, but with an increase in demand, she doesn't have enough capital to keep up. For this reason, she is asking for a loan of PHP 25,000 to purchase vegetables, meat and soft drinks. Her goal is to have a large well-known restaurant and for her stall to make more money and provide employment through hiring waitresses in her restaurant. She hopes to achieve her objective soon.
