Good day!

We are Grade 12 students from Miriam College High School. We are currently studying to compare the income and experiences of male and female entrepreneurs with e-commerce during the height of the pandemic from March 2020-2021 for our Practical Research 2. 

In this regard, may we ask for your permission to allow us to use the questionnaire on Women-led Micro, Small, and Medium EntEnterprises (WoMSMEs) in Metro Manila Using E-Commerce Questionnaire for our research paper. 

Rest assured that this is for a non-profit purpose and solely for the completion of the task.
