Marissa is in the transportation business, particularly jeepney. She is indeed thankful because her husband is supportive of her running her transportation and other businesses. Marissa's husband is a driver and a farmer within her area. The couple also raises hogs as an additional source of income.

Marissa would like to change the wheels and buy gasoline for her jeepney to ensure the safety of her passengers. But due to insufficient capital, she is seeking a loan of PHP 10,000. She knows that this amount will enable her to obtain better income and secure her passengers. Marissa hopes and prays that she can obtain her loan to be able to secure her family's future, educate her three children and improve her living conditions.
