Alona, 33 years of age, is married to a truck driver and blessed with one child. She has owned and operated a retail store in their village for almost six years. With this business she's earning a net income of PHP 500-700 daily. Her net daily profit was spent on purchasing hogs to raise, and hog feed, for additional income. Due to insufficient funds, she would like to avail herself of a loan amounting to PHP 15,000 to purchase sugar, coffee, cooking oil, biscuits, and beverages to sell. She's hoping that her business will continue to grow and become more profitable.
