Meet Liza, an Entrepreneur in the Philippines

Liza is very diligent businesswoman, sacrificing a lot in working to reach her goals in life. Liza is 38 years old and married. She has three children who are all in the school-aged and her family resides in the province of Nueva Ecija. Their family is always helping each other, her children and her husband always extend their helping hand with her especially for the success of her business.

Liza manages a general store. She sells a variety of products such as bread, canned goods, soft drinks, frozen food and other daily basic commodities. She has been operating her general store for over 10 years and she earns approximately 4000 Philippine pesos per month. She wants to buy more products to sell in order to meet the demand of her customers, but she does not have enough capital. With additional capital she will be able to buy additional stock and increase her income. The income that she will generate will be used to expand her business and pay for the tuition fees of her children.
