“I am a mother who has big dreams for my child”, says Julieta A., a 38-year-old mother from Butuan City, Agusan Del Norte. She aspires to having a simple, happy family life. Having little to provide for her family's needs, she worries where to get money to send her children to school.
Her desire to help with the family expenses encourages her to have her own store, where she sells a variety of goods to her neighbors. She is requesting a loan to purchase additional stock and items to sell. By doing this, she believes she will earn a bigger income.
