Marilyn is a mother of three children. She is 32 years old and has been operating her business for ten years. She was not able to get a good job because she has little education. That is why she runs a fruit and vegetable business.

She needs to earn more money to provide a good education for her children. However, Marilyn has insufficient funds to purchase the produce that is now in heavy demand and very profitable. This led her to request a loan of PHP 35,000 to purchase dragon fruit, chico, cabbage and pechay. These additional items would help increase her sales so she can save for the good future of her three children.
