Loreta is aged 31, married and blessed with two children.

She has owned and managed a retail store in their village for almost ten years and earns a net income of PHP 5,000 daily. Her net income from this business usually goes towards their savings.

However, due to inadequate capital to run her business, she would now like to take out a loan amounting to PHP 30,000 to purchase beverages, charcoal, rice, detergent soap, canned goods and noodles to sell.

She hopes that her business will continue to improve and become more profitable.
