Erlinda is a hard-working mother and of full of hope. She is married with two children. She is thankful because she has been running her retail store for four years.

Erlinda would like to increase the volume of grocery items she offers within her local community, but she doesn't have enough capital. She is asking for a loan of PHP25,000 to buy cases of soft drinks, canned goods, assorted biscuits and junk food for her retail store. She believes that with more grocery items she could earn a better profit, improve her financial stability and satisfy her customers' demand. Erlinda hopes for the approval of her requested loan.
