Rushel is young businesswoman, yet single. She has operated her toy retail store for three years now. Her store is located at her village while her other one is located at Aritao Nueva Vizcaya.

Rushel aims to have a better way of living and to obtain an increased income so she could support her youngest sibling in her studies.

She plans to buy more stocks of groceries, clothing, and toys, but she has insufficient capital. So she is requesting a loan of PHP 17,000. This amount of loan is useful in the further growth of her retail store. Rushel hopes for approval of her requested loan.
