Marilyn believes that "having patience and strong determination will help you to achieve your goals." She is 40 years old and chose to be a single. She aims to become successful and financially stable so that she can support financially her old parents and her niece and nephews to finish their studies.
She was chosen to be the one who will manage the school canteen. She is so happy that she has the opportunity to manage a business. She aimed to increase her product offerings to satisfy the needs of her customers. But due to insufficient capital, she is asking for a loan of PHP 50,000.00 to buy soft drinks, junk food, candies, biscuits, seasonings, and raw ingredients to be cooked and sold in the school canteen.
She is hoping that she will be successful in her business through this financial assistance.
