Janet is a responsible housewife who always supports her husband in generating income for the sake of their family. She is engaged in buying and selling fruits and vegetables in the Public Market to generate income. Due to the high cost of commodities and school fees, she aims to improve the business and increase her income to continue supporting the education of their two children. They want them to finish a degree so they will be employed someday. She plans to acquire more fruits and vegetables to sell but she has inadequate capital. Therefore, she is asking for PHP 15,000 to buy more stocks of carrots, potatoes, cabbages, beans, cauliflowers, onions and garlic to sell. She believes that this financial assistance will enable her to improve the business. She hopes that she will be successful and financially stable in the future.
