To earn a living, Marilyn is involved in the farming industry. She has two years of experience in this field. Marilyn’s husband helps her run her farm. Their farming operations are the only source of income for their family, and she explains that they earn approximately 20,000 PHP of profit per crop yield.
She is now requesting a loan in the amount of 50,000 PHP to expand and improve her business. With the loan proceeds, she would like to purchase seeds and fertilizers, which she expects will help to increase her income.
