Maryliza is a 46-year-old married woman and a mother of a 21-year-old son from Ubay, Bohol. She has run a sari-sari (or variety store) business for more than 12 years now. She sells various goods to the people in her community.
Maryliza is asking for a loan to buy more stock to sell in her store, such as canned goods, noodles, chips and biscuits, soda and toiletries. With this, she will be able to attract and cater to more buyers and customers in her store, thus augmenting her sales and profit.
In the future, Maryliza has hopes of expanding her business in order to generate more revenue necessary for the needs of the family.
