Jelly Demetria
Jelly Demetria is 58 years old and now a widow. She was gifted with four children and they live happily in a rural community. Due to the hardship of living, she puts up a small variety store in their village to generate income for their needs.

Jelly Demetria aims to increase her product offerings, but she has limited capital. For this reason, she is asking for additional business capital of PHP 5,000 to buy stocks of canned goods, noodles, food snacks, assorted candies, beverages, soft drinks, and seasonings to sell. She hopes that her loan will be granted in order to make further improvement in her business.
