Marilyn is a mother who aims to become financially stable so that she can satisfy her family's needs and educate all her children. She is 39 years old and has four school-age children. To generate income, she engages herself in the hog raising business, while her husband works as a carpenter in their community.
Due to financial difficulty, she and her husband aim to improve their sources of income so that they will be able to continue sending their children to school and give them a bright future.
Marilyn plans to continue and improve her hog raising business to increase her income. She is asking for a loan of 42,000 PHP to buy feed, vitamins, and vaccines for her hogs. She believes that this loan will enable her to make an improvement in the business and hopes that she will make it a viable and profitable source of income in the future.
