Trifina's family's main source of income comes from their livestock and farming business. She is married and has three grown up children.

Trfina's business has grown which is the reason she put up another business - a retail store - to provide her her family with an additional source of income. She plans to put more stocks of merchandise into it, but her capital is insufficient so she is requesting a loan of PHP 15,000. She hopes that she can expand her retail store and earn greater profits which she can use to cover her family's household expenses, and improve their living condition. She also hopes to be able to save some money for emergency purposes in the future if she gets weak.
