Blanca is 50 years of age. She is a hardworking woman. She is married and is a loving mother of four children.

She operates sari-sari store business to support her family, earning PHP 500 every day. Blanca’s income is insufficient due to the high cost of commodities and electricity. So she therefore determined to ask for a loan of PHP 20,000 to purchase additional groceries such as biscuits, canned goods, noodles and coffee. With the loan, she hopes to increase her proceeds every day in order to be able to meet her expenses and to save for continued education of her children.
