Juliet is a graduate in economics. She is living with her long-time partner and three children.
In the year 1998, she applied for work as salesclerk at City Colorland. Luckily, she was hired as a salesclerk in the same year.
Nowadays, she manages her rice retailing, frozen foods and boarding house businesses. Aside from these businesses, Juliet also manages her transportation business as her additional source of income.
Juliet's goal is to earn greater profits, let her children finish their studies, uplift their living condition and have a stable source of income. So, she patiently runs all her businesses to make all her dreams possible. Her profits from her transportation, rice retailing and boarding house businesses were used to cover all their daily expenses, allowances of her three children and monthly payments for electric bills and water bills.
Now she is applying for additional working capital of PHP 40,000. She will use this amount to buy 15 sacks of rice and some frozen foods. She hopes for approval of this loan so that her goals in life will come to reality.
