Marlyn and her nine-year-old daughter live in the town of Antequera, Bohol where she makes and weaves baskets for an income. She also raises hogs for a profit. She has been struggling to provide for her child because she is not earning much income from her business due to limited capital. Marlyn is asking for a loan to buy feed, nylon, buri and rattan. The availability of the needed materials will help Marlyn to be more productive in her basket making business and to produce fattened hogs. A successful business will allow her to buy food for her family and send her daughter to school.
