Rufina is 57 years old and blessed with four children. To make living, she sells wood and coconuts. She has been in this business for seven years. She is patiently developing this source of income because it is a great help in supporting the family. Despite her age, she has still the strong body to do this job. Her dream of achieving a better standard of living makes her stronger.

To further meet her dream, she is asking for a loan amount of PHP 10,000 to buy fruits and coconuts as additional goods to offer for sale. This would provide her with a higher income.
