To increase the family's income, Marivic buys and sells plastics and used bottles to the people in the village where they live. She usually earns a daily profit of P200. That is used for daily meals and the needs of her children.
She is now asking for a loan of P4,000 to have additional capital to buy more used bottles, magazines, plastics and cans and sell them to the junk shop.
