Susan is 38 years old and separated with four children. As a single parent, she has many obligations to her children. For the past year, Susan has managed a shop where she sells meat. She is thankful that her business runs smoothly through her hard work and determination.

Susan is requesting a 20,000 PHP loan to buy stocks of frozen meat to increase her stock and meet customer need. She hopes her loan will be approved as her household expenses have increased. In the future, Susan plans to give her children a quality education and provide a better way of life for her family.
