Sonia, 48 years old, lives in Estefania with her husband and children. Her spouse is a farmer, while she cooks and sells snacks to supplement their income. Because she only earns P4,000 monthly, just enough for their daily expenses, she aims for better profits to better provide for her family's needs.

Sonia is now requesting a loan of P6,000 to buy cooking oil, flour, sugar, bananas and eggs to use in cooking snacks. The resulting increased income will help to provide a better life for her family.
