Dario is a 65-year-old married man and a father of seven grown up children from Ubay, Bohol. He has operated a sari-sari or variety store business for more than four years now. This is the source of his income.
He is asking for a loan to buy additional stock to sell in his store, like canned goods, noodles, candies, biscuits, chips and snack foods, beverages, soap and toiletries. With this, he will be able to attract and cater to more buyers in his store, thus increasing his sales and profit. In the future, Dario hopes of making his business a success.
