Due to lack of job opportunities, Lorly engages in a business to help her husband in generating income for their family. She runs a small variety store in their community, selling different grocery items, soft drinks and frozen foods.
She aims to make the business viable and profitable in order to earn sufficient income to satisfy their necessities and finance the education of her child. She and her husband are aiming for a happy and successful life in order to give their child a better life.
To achieve their goals, Lorly aims to improve her variety store and to generate a higher income. She is requesting additional capital of PHP 40,000 to buy additional stocks of soft drinks, beverages, seasonings, soaps, junk foods, canned goods, seasonings and frozen foods for sale.
Lorly believes that this financial support will enable her to improve the business. She hopes that she will achieve her goals in the future.
