Due to the hardship of living, Marlyn engages in selling 'buko' pies (coconut pies), corn and 'buko' juice (coconut juice) in the local community. This is her way of helping her husband in generating income. Being responsible parents, they aim to educate their three children and give them a better life. In this regard, Marlyn aims to strengthen her business to generate a higher income.
Due to financial constraints, she is asking for a loan of P 25,000 to buy more stocks of corn, 'buko' pie and 'buko' juice for sale. She believes that this loan will be a great help to improve the business and hopes that she will be successful in the future.
