Jesusa's goal in life is to send and let her children finish their studies. She doesn’t have any money to give them when they will be separated, but the only treasure she can give to them is education. Jesusa runs a sari-sari (variety) store business and at the same time is a vendor of vegetables in the market. She can do two businesses at once, because she wants to attain her goal.

Jesusa now is requesting for a loan of 15,000 PHP to buy vegetables and grocery items to sell. She wants to have additional capital to extend the products she offers. Jesusa’s earnings will be utilized by her children's needs, most especially in their chosen profession. She would be grateful if her requested loan will be granted,.
